She had said all of the things over and over.
Rehearsing her award-winning speech in the mirror.
Uttering the words time and again.
“Is this our beginning or is this the end?”
She was resolute not leaving anything to chance.
As her will was oft weakened by romance.
She spoke her peace and held her breath.
Inside dying a small death.
Courageously she stared into those big round eyes.
And with the answer, she released a deep sigh.
