Enough For Now

She was finished with one more letter Meaning she had finished one more heart drawn seal Wonderinghow he may respond In three days time as he reads her words Will he be angered By reading something wrong Will he cry himself to sleep For she longs to have him hold her- or Will he view her pictures And feel as alone as she does With one last look She places the envelope with the next day's mail Wishing he could be there to comfort her An uneasy fear of sleeping alone Overcomes her as she ventures through out her house SLowly, yet steadily, turning out lights Crawling into an empty bed In a dark lonely room Bravely, she reminds herself of his promises He promised things would get better When he came home He promised it wouldn't be long- though Maybe not this week or even this month, but soon And that had to be enough His words had to be enough for now Till he walked through her door Home to stay For good
