Christmas Newsletter, draft no. 3

Some people think Christmas newsletters

are boastful

are messy

are boring

are burdensome.

But I thought all year

about what I wanted you to know.

I don’t send newsletters often.

I don’t even remember how to spell when I

am busy.

But even though I don’t put things

in the mail anymore,

please know

I thought of you all year.

I had you in the pocket of my heart.

And you,

even if I never had another drop

from your pen,

are indelibly written

on my soul.
