My words are: blue vase ~ washer ~ broom ~ chicken ~ butterfly ~ pumpkinThey were submitted by: http://spatulasonparade.blogspot.
Thank you for these challenging, wonderful words!
As I stand here with the broom, sweeping by the washer and dryer, a chard of blue glass comes out from beneath the washer.
I am instantly brought back to that day.
The day we ate curry chicken and pumpkin pie in the kitchen.
The day you told me you loved me for the first time and gave me a bouquet of sunflowers in a blue vase.
It was a beautiful vase.
Royal blue with a family of butterflies flying around the base.
My favorite butterfly was the small yellow one.
Over the years, each time I would use the vase, I would always make note of the yellow butterfly and how perfect its wings were.
Just like you.
Perfect like the day you gave me the flowers.
Perfect like the years that followed.
In hindsight, I should have known it would end.
Nothing lasts forever, except maybe eternity.
Now you are gone.
The vase is broken, just like our happy home.
Our love extinguished.
Our eternity over before it really began.
I should have known.
Nothing is forever.
