Goodbye....

She knew the time had come. She had to say good-bye to him as a new life awaited her.
She pulled the shawl closer to her as she felt a sudden chill. She also knew even without looking back that he had come.
She turned around and saw the all too familiar face, the slightly unshaven cheeks, the deep brown eyes which had lost its twinkle. He tried to hold her hand, she pulled away, too scared about the all too familiar touch which had once ignited the passion from the bottom of her soul. He kept looking at her with one question in his eyes for which she had no answer...

He: Is it time to go?
She: Yes
He: Again, I am asking you, why?
She: It wasn't meant to be....
He pulled her close to him, for the last time.. Smelt her hair, her perfume for the very last time. He kissed those lips that he thought was his for the very last time.
She pulled away and there were tears in her eyes as she slowly walked away from the only person she would ever love...
She walked away into the fading evening as he stood watching silently with tears in his eyes...
She turned back just once and then kept walking....
He watched her till he could see her no more and then turned back and walked away from a thousand dreams, hopes and the only love of his life....


Edited to Add: Vicky sent this song, which seemed apt with this post, so here it is:

Where are you?
Why do you hide?
Where is that moonlight trail that leads to your side?
Just like the moonraker goes in search of his dream of gold,
I search for love, for someone to have and hold,
I've seen your smile in a thousand dreams,
Felt your touch and it always seems,
You love me,
You love me.

Where are you?

When will we meet?
Take my unfinished life and make it complete
Just like the moonraker knows
His dream will come true someday
I know that you are only a kiss away

I've seen your smile in a thousand dreams,

Felt your touch and it always seems,
You love me,
You love me.

(from James Bond 007 - Moonraker, 1979)

@Poppins: Its 100% Fiction... I wrote it a couple of years back and back then I didn't have a blog - so it was on a notepad - was going thru the old stories I had written, so thought of posting this one...
Separation - not good. I miss him... But, its better than what I had expected...

@Rayshma: Thank you! He will be back during the last week of November - long way to go still...
