“Five years,should you come back then,I promise..”,she said.
Words he kept repeating everyday in bed
Striking off the next date in the calendar before the clock struck midnight
Days shortening,smile broadening
The wait was nearly over,he could finally see the light.
She wanted him to stand firmly on his knees before going down on one
He had done his best,now a doctor,second to none.
The day arrived,she got his call,unexpected
Voice stuttering,heart fluttering
Pondering about the promise that had to be respected.
Candle light dinner,nervous laughter and he finally went down on his knee
Held out his hand,his heart on a thumping spree
Looking down,hoping to feel the warmth with her cold touch
Body shivering,hands quivering
Praying intensely,promising the Almighty,in return,much.
His hand still cold and with no words spoken
A minute passed like an eternity and he was all broken
Looked up amidst tears blurring his eye
Her face turned,his loyalty spurned
Little could she do,troubled with an imminent sneeze that just wouldn’t come by.
Merry Christmas,dear Reader! May the spirit of Christmas bring the bests of health and happiness to your home! Stay blessed.
