Everyday the same routine. Arise. Look to the sea.
Would today be the day?
Memories of her tinkling laugh.
Her bright eyes.
The little love notes she would ‘hide’, which were so easily found.
Could that have been her purpose?
Every day together a gift.
The ease of their conversation. Her confidence had given him confidence.
Too late he discovered their loss.
He awoke one morning. She had gone.
Taken by The Chariot of Time.
Finding little comfort in the whispers of tender passersby,
“A love like that, if it could only be bottled.”
Vainly, he waits.
“But even though she was attractive, there was something else about her that caught his eye. She was intelligent, he could sense that right away, and confident, too, as if she were able to move through life on her own terms. To him, these were the things that really mattered. Without them, beauty was nothing.”
