ABIGAILS TALE - ONE DAY VERY SOON

In the comfort of the coffee shop Nestled into a sofa Sits Abigail, homesick and sad As she reads a letter from home She knows the sadness will pass And sooner this time than the last It strikes each time a letter arrives from home With news from those she left behind Her parents, loving and kind Her sister annoyingly lovely All her friends of long standing And of course him She left her home town The only place she had ever lived After her marriage failed So she is building a new life Away from the people and places Away from all the familiarity That reminded her daily Of her failure and her inadequacies So she lives in a new town And is making new friends Discovering new familiar places And trying to forget past mistakes She has joined a new church Where her angels voice Sings in praise to heaven And she is finding peace within herself One day very soon Abigail will sit In the comfort of the coffee shop Nestled into a sofa And not be homesick and sad One day very soon Abigail will read A long letter from home And smile at it contents And not feel the old pain strike One day very soon Abigail will let herself be happy One day very soon Abigail will forgive herself
