A Simple Note

by Warren Rodgers

Feelings Contest Winner 
One day I wrote a simple note
It ended "I Love You"
And placed it 'neath your pillowed head
Before the sun broke through

I left for work before you woke
You called me on the phone
You thanked me then but now I am
Bereft by death, alone

Today I found it in the drawer
That cuddles near the bed
It marked a page inside a book
Of poems you once read

But now the note was faded by
The idleness of years
The pinkish shade it started as
Grew darker by my tears

Beside my words from years before
Inside the heart you drew
You wrote the sweetest simple words
"I'll always love you too"
