Early or Late?

Their son was far away and
incommunicado when her husband
died suddenly and her
beloved was buried and the
funeral accoutrements long forgotten when he
came back tall and tanned and
suddenly solidly grown up
wrapping her in a thoroughly
masculine embrace which made her
gasp and moisten despite her
despair and the impropriety but
making her think that it
wasn’t too late though perhaps it was
too early.
