Evening Vigil


She sits by candlelight

Surveying the room for imperfections

Noticing details of life collected through artifacts

And knickknacks that adorn her walls



She exhibits patience

A virtue reserved for those wanting

Needing to have something more, but resists

The temptation to fight harder



She can be anyone

But she is herself, retaining pride

Feeling within her that dignity bears importance

That relationships are more than couples



She is wise beyond us all

As she had loved and still loves

Keeping her heart intact, using it carefully

As she waits for her man to come home to her
