She asked him to come home early like always, he smiled, kissed her forehead and left for work.
Its a special day today and not just another day that passes just like sand in the hand. She wants this day to pass slowly so she can make it more special for him.
She cleans the house singing along, she hates doing dishes but did them dancing along the tune she hummed. Kept white lilies besides his chair. She made her home feel fresh as the morning dew.
The clock struck six and she ran inside to change and dress up for her man.
Beautiful dress that kissed the floor with flowers blossoming all over her body. Open hair with loose curls, pretty red lipstick on her full lips like petals of a youthful rose. A hint of fragrance to tease his senses. She was all ready to welcome him home.
Doorbell rang. A smile ran on her face showing her not-so-perfect teeth. She opened the door and he just stood in amazement. She looked exactly the same when he asked her to marry him. All he could do was smile and kiss her with all the love that was gushing through his body that moment. Then she made him a coffee as he liked- strong, black, with one sugar cube.
That kiss left a mild smile on her face as this was the revival of the love she thought was fading through the years. Her beauty made him realize maybe he didn’t notice her for quite sometime.
The air smelled of lilies and her perfume that had caught his attention again after all these years. She was wearing the pearl necklace he gifted her with his first saving. Every effort she made was being noticed .
He played soft music and grabbed her by her waist and they both laughed and danced like never before.
He kissed her hand and made her sit, poured wine in glasses and they proposed a toast in honor of their togetherness of Fifty Years. They both smiled with wrinkled faces that showed the divine carving of time. Their love and care kept them together and everything felt fresh as fifty years ago when they were just innocent little faces.
The evening embraced this young couple with a light drizzle that brought another bunch of memories with it. And they just sat all night holding hands living all the moments they thought were long lost.
