She waited, ignoring the skeptics
Soon, he promised
Weeks, months, she trusted
War wasn't predictable, so she believed

A year, then two, and three
The skeptics began to make sense
Yet he promised soon

Five years passed
He thanked her for her support
Said he would do anything for her
But she wanted more

'Soon' became 'sooner', then 'soonest'
He was on the way home, she believed it
Instead soonest turned to 'ASAP'
And more months passed

Doubts crept in to fight with her heart
She needed to believe
Not because he promised
But because she needed him to complete her dream
