Message in a bottle

While reading Thijs' poems I formed images and associations in my head. This poem immediately reminded me of a message in a bottle.

A love letter in a bottle that floats in water for years and eventually finds its way back to the right person at the right time.
" Ik stop liefdesbrieven 
in het water
om problemen op te lossen
voor later "

translation:

" I put love letters
in the water
to solve problems
for later "
