No word about her husband.
All the letter said,
“Missing in Action”
Her heart tells her he is alive.
But everything else says he has died
As she looks at his picture-taking her wedding ring off and placing them together.
With tears running down her face
In a soft voice, you could hear her talking to him.
I waited for you for such a long time,
Every night I prayed for you to come back to me,
It was not to be.
For now, I will say Good-bye
The day will come when we will see each other again.
Laying the picture and the ring in a drawer
She knew it was forever.
But would it be?
