Sheila couldn’t believe how overgrown it was. She traced her hand over the white rail.
“It seems like only yesterday doesn’t it.” Bert whispered in her ear.
She remembered how glorious that special day had been. He had promised her the most spectacular wedding and it had been. Truth was she’d have been happy with a small Church and a few guests, it was marrying him that meant the world.
“You looked beautiful my Princess…you still do. ” Bert added grinning.
Sheila smiled and looked out over the hills below.
“I wish you were here.” she muttered.
“I am.” Bert replied.
Okay..you guys are tearing me up with these beautiful stories!
They are always so good, I can’t wait to read more tomorrow.
Yours was touchingly beautiful.
Awww thank you for such a lovely comment.
really very sad. written in a poetic manner. As they say, lovers may die, but the concept of love will never die
Exactly right! Glad you enjoyed it.
Nice build up. I’m not sure what happened in the end or did I miss something? Is something devious going on here?
Nothing devious. Just time tearing love apart and love overcoming it!
Lovely story. Pure and simple.
Thanks for your sweet reply Rochelle. Glad you liked it.
Very poignant, well done!
She still talks to him (and hears him) after he’s gone – what a sweet story 🙂
Maybe… When I wrote it I imagined she might not hear him as much as sense him. Your interpretation makes sense though. Thanks for commenting.
lovely story 🙂
very sweet …
thanks, glad you liked. 🙂
I love how you wove your twist throughout the story and then let us know what it was at the end. Nicely done and filled with love.
Thanks Janet, the inspiration was strong in this photograph.
Loved this. Sad yet inspiring.
Thanks Sandra, it is always sad to lose a love. Lovely that he is still there for her/ with her though.
Well written, darling, though I regret to say that my subconscious couldn’t stop itself from casting them as Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. Ha!
Ha, ha… I had hoped making them considerably older and naming them Bert & Sheila may have been enough… No mention of Clay pots though. Hadn’t thought about ‘Ghost’ and now can’t get it out of my head!
Very poignant. I hope she can hear him still standing by her side.
I’m sure she will learn to, one day. 🙂
this is beautiful… love overcomes all obstacles 🙂
Thanks Kz, it certainly does.
Sweet love story, even if he s dead,
Thanks, he has passed but their hearts are still united.
