Your letters are pleasant surprises in their own right as I can never be certain when to expect them. There’s always a bit of fear they’ll be lost, and my only lifeline to you will be severed.
You outdid yourself with the gift, my darling. The necklace chain dangles the key above my heart. No doubt you did that one purpose. It almost seems a waste, though, a key with no lock. My heart is never locked to you, love, and I’ll hold this key you’ve made to my heart always.
It’ll be a piece of you to keep me safe. I feel fear growing as the days pass. Even my nightmares have started again. Without you here, I believe they’ll only worsen. If only you could return sooner…I miss you so.
May all time lost reach you when this finds its way into your hands.
