My sweet Havio,
You must Forgive me for my late reply
But i found it simply quite difficult indeed to pen my feelings.
I wanted so desperately to tell you the depth of my love
How much you mean to me
and how your absence takes away any ray of sunshine from my day
Yesterday i stood in the garden and i saw the butterflies floating around the flowers
and it came to suddenly my dear
i thought this is how your love makes me feel
much like a delicate butterfly
light as air
with no hope of ever landing.
your love is like the sweet nectar from flowers
that i hungrily drink of
I smile ever so often when i think of you.
I wait with bated breath for your letters.
With all my love
Always and forever your butterfly
