Before dawn, she is at the harbour, waiting impatiently.  This is the day she has hoped for; longed for; waited for; for so very many years.  To her great joy, one such reunion has already happened.  To her great sorrow, there is one reunion that will never now take place.

As the light grows, the ship is sighted; sails shimmering in the early sunlight.  As it draws near, she sees them; standing shoulder-to-shoulder by the rail, tall and beautiful. As the ship docks, they come; bounding down the gang plank to throw themselves into her tearful, joyous embrace.

Her sons.
