A very poor man lived with his wife.
One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb
for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed.

The man felt very sorry and said no.
He explained that he did not even have enough money
to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken.
She did not insist on her request.

The man went to work and passed by a watch shop,
sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife.

He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.

He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut.

She had sold her hair and was holding a new watch band.

Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes,
not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.

To love is nothing, to be loved is something
but to love and to be loved by the one you love,
that is everything.
Never take love for granted..!!

life’s evidence

She moves  slow in the crowd
People grumbling about her
why …., what’s the matter?
she doesn’t understand
that she is the barrier

look in the mirror
trying to find wrong
nothing ….but wrinkles and gray hair
shaky hands with appearing veins

re look into the mirror
staring eyes to eyes
try to believe what she saw
but still confusing
“Grandma” a little girl approaching
She looks at her,  smiling with doubt

 

 again look in the mirror
she just realized, time has changed her
She takes the little girl on her lap
whispered, you are the fact of my life
The evidence of sixty-four year journey of my life
