She looped a stray curl behind her ear,
As she bit her bottom lip, concentrating.
It had been a busy few weeks, but
Finally, the end was in sight.
Her anticipation grew,
Soon they would board that plane
And fly far away. Away from here,
The constant demands from work,
They both had been through the ringer,
They have no more to give. So it was time,
Time to get away, to see the mountains
To travel out west. A well deserved break.
A time to recover from all this strain.
