Settled Heart

It settled his heart
to send her post
over the next few weeks
~ something, anything,
for her to hold him
while he waited
patiently to see her.

She reassured him that
post would always be the
most beautiful way ~
but what she was already
holding from him
could not be package up
and sent…

& with such tender words,
she gently picked him up
& swept him off
his feet ~ the first of
many times to come…
