She left him without saying the last goodbye.
He felt betrayed for his last questions were still unanswered.
He was left with no answers but only, memories that made his tears fall freely.
Nature joined him in his moment of grief, crying incessantly.
Hopeless he sat by her grave, missing her dance in the rain.

This is touching !!! Just five sentences make you feel this fiction as in real, great job Nibha. Well penned and great usage of image.
Thanks so much 🙂
Wonderfully said, realistically sad.
I haven’t lost a spouse/partner to death (selfishly, I hope I’m the one who goes first in my relationship because I couldn’t bear life without him.) My dad died last year. There was a lot unspoken between us. I wanted to talk about it but he was a very stoic person. That was the main issue between us. I wear my emotions on my sleeve, he kept his bottled up.
I enjoyed your piece.
That was sad to hear your experience 🙁
Thanks for appreciation! 🙂
Aah! That’s heart-wrenching! A beautiful blend of words that created a vivid imagery! Good one, Nibha 🙂
Thanks so much! I’m glad you liked it! 🙂
This was such a touching bit of fiction. Unanswered questions and incomplete love stories are the saddest things.
Indeed they are! I’m glad you liked it 🙂
Profoundly sad and expressed so well in just a few words. Good one! 🙂
Thank you so much Debbie 🙂
Sad and tragic but well written. I could feel his despair.
I’m glad I could touch your heart with the story
Ouch…so painful. I can imagine sitting there in the rain for eternity if I lost my husband.
There is nothing worse than that final goodbye – and there are always unanswered questions…
Seriously, it hurts to not have answers to those questions!!
that’s a very touching little story
