The last letter I received from him was a month ago. He said he would be coming in on the ship and his active duty overseas will be over. It has been such a long time since I have seen him and I can't wait to see him again.
I have been coming to the pier every day waiting for his ship. Every day I have been disappointed. But today may be the lucky day. I feel it in my bones. He's coming in today!
I wait but alas, he doesn't come in and again, I am disappointed.
I will stay here at the pier and wait. One day, my ship will come in.
