She dreamed of the day things were different between them

But she realized she must be tender with herself, and how things are now

She wished with her whole heart that his eyes had a different view

But she realized she must concentrate first on what it is she sees

She hoped beyond hope that he just gave her a chance, a moment, a brief sliver of time

But she realized that if he did not desire that, than that is how it was meant to be

She just wanted it to be easier

Not hurt so much

Not take so long

But she knows the universe is hard at work

And she can surrender to that thought

Things have a way of working out

They always have and they always will

And when that day comes

She will then cross over
