Of Love & Longing

The echoes of laughter rang through,

Quick glances & quiet smiles being exchanged,

Of walks in the park & some friendly banter,

Her heart strings tugged lightly.

She longed for a conversation,

A real one, for she hated small talk.

Heidi is a story about a young girl in the Swiss Alps, who lives with her grandfather & his dog, Joseph.
