The wait

bridge love

He had to find her. He hadn’t slept a wink all night for he couldn’t wait for the day to dawn. Separated from his beloved for no fault of his and detained in this hellhole, there wasn’t a single when he didn’t cry. They had dreamed of a life together and the war had crushed those dreams. That was so long ago. Would she still be waiting for him? The day had arrived. As he looked into the distance and took his final steps out of the prison, he saw someone waiting for him. Was it her? Yes it was!
