She Smiles

She writes to him often

Sometimes twice each day

Their growing love

Gives her many things to say.

But suddenly a look of distress

Crosses her beautiful face

She's realizing the war is spreading

He might be in some dangerous place.

She presses down on her pen

Pushing her worries back in her mind

With pleasant moments of them together

Knowing memories is all she has

Until some glorius future time.

She smiles_Her letter is done...
