  Yesterday I wrote a letter,
Read it softly to the wind.
Then I asked God to address it,
And to place it in your hand.
When it's opened, you will hear me
Whisper words I should have said
As you listen, I'll be waiting
'Til the final word is read

Love, I hope you still remember
How you love to hear my cries;
How the fire grows from the ember
When I look into your eyes.
Can you listen to my heartbeat?
Can you hear between my tears?
Do you feel the way I love you?
Baby, let me make it clear.

When I reach out in the darkness
Seems I taste you in the air
As I lay my head upon you
I remember dreams we shared.
Think I feel your arms around me
And your voice is in my ear
Then I burrow even deeper
'Gainst a heartbeat I can't hear.

So, I say a prayer to guide you
To the arms that hold you tight
And they're opened wide to keep you
Close beside me through the night.
Whisper lightly that I love you
And I hear your soft reply.
As I’m drifting off you tell me
"Oh my darling, so do I."’”

Yesterday I wrote a letter,
Read it softly to the wind.
Now I know that God delivered
It directly to your hand.
When you opened it, I heard you
Whisper words I longed to hear
I could barely feel my breathing
For I knew that you were near.

Honey, do you still remember
How I love to hear you laugh?
Do you hear the songs I'm singing
Like a broken phonograph?
I still listen to your heartbeat,
I can hear between your tears.
Do you feel the way I love you?
Baby, let me make it clear.

When you reach out in the darkness
I am always lying there
Waiting for your head upon me
For the softness of your hair.
So I wrap my arms around you
And I whisper in your ear
Then you burrow even deeper
'Gainst a heart that's always near.

I don't need a prayer to guide me
To the arms that hold me tight
For they're always wide to keep me
Close beside you through the night.
And I whisper that I love you
Just to hear your soft reply.
As you're drifting off you tell me
"Oh my darling, so do I."’”

That is so sweet! I love the hope that turns into reality throughout the poem of wanting to find that person and then finding them
