‘Spend time with her’ my doctor said. ‘She doesn’t have long’ he said.

I never expected early retirement.


'I put your things in a box’ my secretary said. 'In your old office' she said.

I’m alone in my office. It’s the same. But it’s different.

In my box is a picture, in a frame.  She's sitting on a sandy beach beneath a sky of blue and gold.

On my desk, there's a new picture, in a frame. A young girl wears a patterned dress of pink and green.

I pick up my box. As I turn and walk away, Tom Wait’s gravelly voice murmurs in my head.


'I’m gonna love you ‘til the wheels come off, oh yeah...’



For Sunday Scribblings 2.
