*  A Love Letter, by Evelyn  *

To whom it may concern,
To the scorned, the lonely, the young and the old.
To the lost, the profound, the lazy and the cold.
To the unknowable, the unappreciated, the unloved and the poor.

I

love you with all my heart,
and maybe even more.

For the world is wrought with strife,
doubt,
grief
and deceit.

And you might think yourself unable to fight
And lay down in defeat.

You may have tried and tried again,
but all you got was hurt before.

But I

love you with all my heart,
and maybe even more.

Unconditional,
unbreakable
and untouchable
by these dark times.

Love is what will get us through,
let not hatred be the thing that defines.

For this reason and many more,
cherish,
appreciate
and adore.

And know that I

love you with all my heart,
and maybe even more.
