to dance

Friday, September 16, 2016



i was walking
he was walking
we did the little dance
where you can't get around someone
so you dance
we laughed
i went home
he went home
years went by
i graduated
he graduated
i got a job caring for the elderly
the old man there told me of his grandson
and how he always would come
and bring him stories
which he had written
just for him
i kept working
he went to college
for literature and writing
when asked what inspired him to write
he would shrug
and say his grandpops
who would tell him stories when he was young
the stories stuck
the memories did too
so he had to write them
people would smile
i continued working
he continued studying
one day

i was walking down the hall
and he was walking
we did the little dance
i remembered
he remembered
"come in grandson, i want you to meet my favorite nurse."
we both locked eyes
our paths had crossed again
and at our wedding
we danced
all night long
under the stars
just him and me

  6. This is TOO cute! Like... hsdfjkhasd, I want this to have been a real thing so much XD. Love. Just. Love. This needs to be the unsuspected plot line of a movie with an awe-filling soundtrack and a shy, sweet, brown haired girl dressed in a green sweater (you really got my mind seeing images with this one... haha!). Like, ya know, you think that the movie is going to be about something else (like the girl jumping through all kind of obstacles to carry out her life dream to help others (because of something that happened in her past?) and the grandpa/his grandson's writings give her encouragement?), and it is about that, too... but the REAL story that leaves people like me with this happy-heartbroken ache inside is this "side plot" (that, of course, would all come together in the last fifteen minutes, because that's how movies with this kind of beauty always torture us)!!!
    And yeah. This really thrilled me. Sorry.
    Thank you.
