FFfAW – Waiting at the Dock

Each day right before sundown I go to the dock and wait for my love that left two years ago on a naval mission.

I wait for several hours and leave once the sun has set, determined to return the next day and wait for his homecoming.

My heart skips a beat when a naval ship comes in and my heart sinks when I learn that it isn't his ship.

I won't give up because I know he will return. My heart assures me that he will return.

I will come to the dock and wait. Wait for my love.

  1. I hope her faith is rewarded. Considering he may never come back, it’s quite a sad story in my head as I imagine her spending the rest of her life staring out over the water…

  2. Touching story PJ. I admire this ladies persistence. At the same time I feel sorry for her, that she is suffering and can’t deal with is almost certain death. Great writing πŸ™‚

  3. Listen to your heart PJ it’s always right!! His ship will come in one of these days!! Ah the things we do for love…but when it’s the one, it doesn’t matter we will do anything!! Great story, so much in so few words. πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
