“The gentleman who lived alone”

Some say he was seen everyday at the same place, standing still… watching over the horizon, waiting for her. No one understood him. Anyone who knew him in town, would call him crazy. All because of his uniqueness, his taste in life, his fancy words used when grocery shopping, his delightful view of life, even after losing his wife 15 years ago. This gentleman was about to celebrate his 85th birthday. People couldn’t understand why he would stand in the middle of the meadow, watching over the horizon, with his arms open, waiting to hug his wife one more time.

It has been 15 years, they would think, why is he still waiting to see her? No one could see themselves as resilient as he was. He probably loved her much, she could’ve been one of those unforgettable women, that tears man apart from their ego and help become a better version of themselves. She probably loved him much too, he could’ve been one of those adorable men, that complements woman’s sharpness with pure poetic idolatry.

Little we knew about the couple, all they knew was how everyday, he would be seen at the same place, standing still… watching over the horizon, waiting for her. wallup.net
