I hear it in the far off distance…
a shiver runs through me.
I cannot see it yet…
but I know it is there.
I strain to see it
but it remains out of sight…
my anticipation grows.

My senses now fine-tuned
I strain to detect any sound
verifying its arrival.
Every crack of  a twig…
every snap of a branch…
no sound escapes un-noticed.

I feel as though I am going to explode.
The sounds now louder
I know it is ever so close
still… I cannot see it.
I know this sound…
I have heard it many times before
in the woods that surround my cabin.

Finally… it shows itself
jet black… slowly appearing
as if it were the sunrise.
I am pleased… knowing
these next few days
will be well worth the wait.

She has made her presence known
and I will take great care
to ensure this encounter is
as memorable as all before it.

The black body now closer, I see it carrying…
my friend, my lover, my partner.
Knowing what this time together brings
a smile comes to me.
I am whole once again.
