fan mail

it was awhile ago, maybe a year
there was a weekend
she came to visit

but i wasn’t home to see
or hug
or listen to her

i was sad

but the next day
and the day after
and for a few more days after that

i found little notes
tucked all around the house

nothing grand or pretty or scented
just a folded scrap of notebook paper
with a tiny heart in the middle

found in my jewelry box
found in the mug that holds my pencils
found in a book on my bedside table
found in a few more places
i can’t remember right now

i’ve left them there to find again
and to remind me,
i am loved
and i love
