Jenna,

I miss you, and I love you. Katrina has come, and I am scared beyond words. I do not fear the imminent destruction of the world around me; the thought that scares me is that you may very well be the most beautiful woman to ever be adorned in black. Black could never bring out the sapphire hues in your eyes that glimmer when you smile. It will never do. I pray to God that He will bring me out of this, and that I will once again hear the sweet symphony of your beautiful voice. Stay strong, my love, no matter what, we will be together again, whether in this life or the next.

As the storm surges her way through, I attempt to remain calm. I'm trying to squeeze past the reminders of my own fragile mortality, and clinging desperately to the last straws of faith that have attached themselves to my heart. This dark hotel room only makes the desire to be home all the heavier; to open tired eyes to the best gift God has ever given me, to feel the loving goosebumps flooding over me as we brush past each other in the hallway, to sipping coffee in our favourite cafe on the corner. I miss you, I love you, and I long to return to your side.

Forever yours,
Charles

I liked your touching article. It reminded me of how often we take people for granted. I hope she receives your postcard someday soon and not a moment is lost.

Katrina did a lot of damage but it could not destroy Charles' love for Jenna or lessen it with fear. This is a beautiful expression of love.
Lisa Graham09/06/05
Beautifully written and touching.

Very lyrical writing style; I really appreciated his words. He'd have had to write very tiny, indeed, for this to fit on a postcard. But you aptly portrayed his love for Jenna.

Very beautiful. Reminds me of victorian romance.
Benjamin Stephens09/09/05
Yep,

That would fit. Look - now, I'm weeping. Black? She's wearing black? Come back Charles - come back! :o)

Seriously, very nicely done and short enough to fit - wish I'd remembered that seocnd rule. -- Ben

Very Victorian! Good work. Could be the start of something more?
Julianne Jones09/09/05
Short and sweet! Really lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Having a dear sister in the Lord lose her husband in that storm.. this hit home.. God bless all the loved ones left behind.

Leaves me to wonder how Charles is ever going to post this one! :) (wait - too soon?) Very good. Very topical. As it's been put before - Short and Sweet. Love to see your next one!
