How are you? it's been a while, what have you been up to? Where have
My mother taught me to wait, wait patiently for you to return from war.
How are the other warriors? hope they are strong as you are?
My time is still ticking, I haven't stopped counting the seconds, the
minutes, the hours, the days, the weeks and the months. it's been
months, yes even years.
Dear Husband, sometimes I wonder, do you ever think of me?
I imagine what you would look like, do you do same? guess what! mother
says am pretty, she says my smiles are beautiful and can lift a burden. I
can't wait for you to confirm it.
When you tell me, then I will believe it more.
Dear husband, have you thought about how many kids we would have? I have
thought about them, maybe three or four.
Have you thought about their sexes? Yes, I have. Boys and girls as they
may come, maybe more girls.
Dear Husband, I have not seen you but I know you. I have held you but I
already adore you. Though it's still a dream but you seem so real, I
know you are coming home soon.
I will be here, waiting for you alone.
Your darling wife
