Dusk till dawn

dusk till dawn

I walk towards the lake as the sky breaks into colours of dusk. I stand mesmerized yet again. Memories of you come rushing to my mind – of the day we met, the day you knelt down with the ring. We’d spent so many nights here, watching the lovely skies from dusk till dawn. Though I was scared of darkness, your presence gave me courage.
But then you left. Suddenly.
I still come here to see you in the twinkling stars, to feel you in the first rays of the rising sun for this is all I have of you.

    Did he just leave or did he come to a bad end? Foul play perhaps?

    That’s sad. Sometimes all we have is memories to live on.
