Love Letter

A poem by Nicole (Niky) McCaffety, December 2019

Nicole (Niky) McCaffety is a writer currently living in Columbia, South Carolina.

Place letters in the walls
So the house remembers
You were in love
Even when time forgets

Small little pocket of the country
Norm at the hardware store
The married couple that own
The café and don’t charge

For the coffee when you
Are new in town.

I can’t fix the kitchen sink
But I can make you tea Make you
Happy. Make

Honey, like the bees you
Keep so well. I’m sorry
I didn’t get here sooner.
This is my love letter

To you.
