Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] dashakay in the Yuletide 2009 fic exchange, first posted here. Many, many thanks to G and F for their excellent (and fast!) beta work. Two of the lines are quotes from Elizabeth Barrett (I love thee to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach) and Robert Browning (I love your verses with all my heart). Feedback and constructive criticism is, as always, welcome and cherished!

Dearest Joe, I'm sitting on the porch of 909, and it seems impossible that this next time I see you will be our last until peace comes again. )
