An Old Novel

Wrapped in an old novel
I found you today.

Peeping between chapters
Some fading words you once
Wrote to me in love.

And a few blanks in between
You left for my reply.

I still smile at your words
While my reply moistens those
Blanks you left for me.

Yes,
For a little while in an old story
I found life today.
