Every inch of his fist sized heart, had been occupied by her. If there was anything as constant as the heart beat, it would be those continuous flow of thoughts of her. It was a perennial affair. Even the heart beat varied depending on emotions, but his thoughts were eternally fixed on her.
Under the shade of the tree he sat, staring into the horizon. He recalled every word they spoke to please each other.The innocent smile on her face when he held her hand, opened a new chapter in his life. The scent of her hair still lingered in his memory. Running around the tree they would play as if nothing else in the world bothered.
She was gone all of a sudden, perhaps taken away by another. But she promised to return.
Memories kept bringing him back to their spot. He was still waiting.
“Let’s go, Grandpa” said the kid next to him. He stared into his tiny eyes and said “give me a moment”
