Using Love Poems

Using Love Poems

empty wine bottlesMy girlfriend and I had been dating about 6 months and I moved away to begin my graduate work. One day, she called me up all depressed because she missed me and I had spoken with other friends and they said that she had been really depressed since I moved.

So, I went to the store and bought a bottle of her favorite wine. When I got home, I drank the wine (the tough part of this all!) and the next day, I typed her a poem. I also decorated the cork with lots of hearts and such. After printing the poem on some nice paper and doing other little touch-ups, I rolled the poem up and tied it off like a scroll.

I placed the scroll in the bottle and corked it with the decorated cork. I then sent it to her and told her to call me when she gets a package from me but not to open it until she gets me on the phone. A few days later she got the package, opened it and she was so thrilled that I had put so much thought into her.
