Sorry We Missed You

The letter just said
‘To live’
No sender.
Or return address.
Years later
Another arrived.
It just said
‘Try harder
To live, my friend’
And so they carried on.
Asking more,
Yet more of me.
Till I gave all I had.
To life,
As it passed.
Until the final
Breath escaped. 
Fluttering the letters
To the floor.
Where they lie
To this day.
Unmarked.
No stamps cover them.
Because they
Never had been
Posted.
