Please Come Back To Me
by Donna L Martin
They warned her about returning but she wouldn't listen. She couldn't. Her mind knew the waiting had been too long. They said he was probably lost with his ship and yet her heart refused to give up. For days she had waited, there by the shore, searching the horizon for some speck of hope to float across the waves and return her love to her. But as weeks turned into months the silence began to engulf her.
That's when the dreams began. At first just mist and moonlight and the hint of a whispered voice calling out for her to come to him. A voice so soft and velvety as it touched her, teasing her with a hunger to hold onto his arms once more until she thought she would go mad with the longing. She could tell no one about those dreams. They already thought her mad. But she knew he was waiting there for her and so she found her way back to the lighthouse. Back to the place where all their dreams began and ended. Back to the place where in her dreams he told her to meet him.
As she made her way up the long winding stairs in the moonlight she could make out a shadow, there is the doorway and she knew he had finally come back for her. They had told her to abandon all hope but her heart simply couldn't let go. She had long since given up knowing what was real and what was fantasy. All she could think of after all these years was that her love had returned...
