Every once in awhile there is a break from the agony of lonely days, the pain of endless nights.
It might be the grumpy baby who looks at you and smiles. The friend who brings over some light bulbs she had in her closet; they don’t fit anything in her home, but would they work for that overhead fan you have? You’ve put off buying anymore of those bulbs because they burn out so quickly, yet these, these work…that room is no longer dark.
Perhaps, if you’re lucky, it’s a major break, something that will change the tide.
I’m ready for the tide to turn.
