It has been a forthnight since she was told,
That her husband would not be coming home.
Pieces of his boat were found adrift at sea,
No sign of him could be seen.
Ever since that fateful day a forthnight ago,
She looks out at sea from dawn to dusk.
Her view is clear from high on the hill,
From their balcony.
Wearing his favorite pink see through gown,
Her flaming red tresses gently flowing in the breeze.
She wore the diamond bracelet he gave her before he left,
Hoping that he would see it sparkling in the light.
It is now a month since that dreadful day,
Still no sign of her beloved.
Then on the last day of the month,
As she stands there looking one last time.
She hears the gentle breeze speak,"I am here my dear wife."
As she looks around there is no one there,"I will love you for all eternity."
A tear rolls down her cheek,
She feels a soft kiss on her cheek.
She hears his voice one last time,"I will always be in your heart and soul.""One day we will be together again,To spend all eternity hand in hand."
She waits.The above story is a work of fiction. The names, characters, places and events are products of the author's imagination and are used as fantasy. Any resemblance to actual events or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.
