One word after another,
Carefully, taking it slow
I drew with ultimate precision,
How much I cared, you should know.

It had our names in calligraphy,
The black ink carved on the page
The amount of time I spent on it,
Right now just brings me rage.

Every intricate detail,
Every mark of the quill
Every single word,
I wanted you then and still.

That bookmark that I made for you,
It wasn't the time I spent
I know it wasn't much to give,
But you don't know how much it meant.

It wasn't the calligraphy,
It wasn't the strokes of the quill
All I want to know,
Do you have it, still?


It wasn't much, but it's the thought that counts.
