The Tale of Larry (Part VI)
In spite of her disbelief,
His fear gave way to relief.
She had moved back into town,
Meaning she would be around.

And her favorite drink he’d make.

Where he’d be waiting at the door.
A “good morning” with a smile,
Made his every day worthwhile.

Waiting for the coming day.

“Could we go out, just us two?”
And she replied: “I’d love to.”
