What She Wanted

Via The Blog Up North I have discovered the 100 Word Challenge, run by Julia’s Place.  It appeals.  Here’s my attempt – the prompt is in bold.

You bought her what she wanted,
You read it in her eyes.
You gave her hope when she was fearful;
Strength when she was flagging;
The courage to examine
What her outward face belies.
I gave her what she needed:
I thought it was enough.
I thought she’d be contented
With passing, light-held comfort.
You wrapped her in a blanket,
Warmed her with your love.
She came home when you released her
Head high, and hope undaunted;
With a new belief; with courage;
And a light behind her eyes.
She’s haunted by your absence.
You gave her what she wanted.
