Darkness and loneliness fill my cell
With pain and fear too great to yell.
I wait for the mailman
To deliver a letter to me
As I wipe away tears
That no one will see.
I pray so sincere
With my head bowed to the heavens above
“Please God! Soon! Send a letter of love”.
I long to gaze upon pages so dear
Written riches on pages
To make my loved ones feel near.
Words of diamonds
On pages of gold
A message from heaven
As their story is told.
“We love you Jesse!
We miss you!
We pray you’ll be free!”
A treasure filled envelope
Written just for me.
Please bring me a letter
Filled with memories of joys I once knew
About family, friends and things I would do.
My heart breaks again
And my eyes fill with tears
As I’m passed again empty handed
Like I don’t even exist.
Once again the darkness
And pain of my cell have prevailed.
My name again was not called for mail :(.
