Forgotten, But Not Left Behind

A Facebook Poem in Two Parts

(Hers)
Woke at 4 a.m.
with a start,
thinking,
He forgot 
something. 
Walked around
my house
with a flashlight, found
his cell phone on the dining
room table, ran into rainy
darkness, tapped on his
window as he was about
to drive away.

(His)
 ...about to drive
away
at 4 a.m. when
I heard a faint tapping
at the window...unlocked
the door and it opened to an
absolute beauty
standing in the misty
moonlight wearing only a
nightie
and my cell phone in her
hand...
Thank you Linda! That was amazing!
