Moments

She smiled at his picture, his deep eyes, passionate and brimming with life, making her weak at her knees.

It was their fifth marriage anniversary, and she had made the arrangements - cakes, flowers and champagne, to celebrate their love and togetherness.

As the clock struck seven, she got up from the bed - he would be back home soon, and she wanted to look the best for him today.

The doorbell didn't ring, neither the phone, but it rained, like that eventful night, when moments had come knocking into her life, as she saw the lifeless body of his being slowly carried away in an ambulance, numb, desolate and in white, exactly three years ago.

She waited with the cake and the candles; her love will bring him back to her, she knew, one day, someday; and till then, she would just live with the moments that were gifted to her, full of tears and the red dusk of hope.

  8. Quite Poignant. While it's wonderful she's remembered this special day of five years ago. It's also quite heartbreaking she'd lost him on the second anniversary on what must have been a wondrous marriage. We've got no control what happens in each moment of our lives, but when it does, it will always be remembered for the rest of it, EXTREMELY well done !!! :-) :-) :-)
