As she watched him driving down the lane, a song started in her mind. “Someday he’ll come along, the man I love…”. It had always been her favorite song, but also a very real dream of hers. To have that man, that love, just for her.
She watched until his car was completely out of sight. Could he be the one who would fulfill that dream? She smiled as she leaned against the porch’s edge. “And he’ll be big and strong, the man I love”….oh, she thought, he can, he will.
