By the Sill

By the Sill

“The power of a woman is her will.”

Long years ago, a trembling heart
Stood there beneath my sill
Chanting for a crumb from me
Too soon, he broke my will
And so I reached out tenderly
To gently touch his face
He stole away each tiny crumb
Then left without a trace
The light and shadow from the sky
Came to scorn my sin
As I waited by the sill
Each day and night for him
The days passed all too quickly
As months turned into years
Yet, a trembling heart awaits
A meager crumb; she fears
