E is for the envelope

That envelope containing that picture and the hand written letter that I used as a bookmark for the book I was reading
That envelope that got returned to the library when the book was returned
That envelope that even got to the different library from where the book was loaned
But then someone saw the envelope, probably read the letter too.
And so they guessed how much precious it may be for someone
And they brought it back the library
And made sure I received it intact
I never knew who the kind stranger was, but can never thank that person enough
Because that envelope is all I have left of you.
