Ruby

Lisa Willams 

a cup of tea in bed

Geoff always woke promptly without an alarm clock and immediately mourned for the one he married. He rose and she stared up at him. Smiling. Not a care in the world. From their wedding photo, taken exactly forty years ago to the day. 
 
He washed, dressed. Thinking that they could be celebrating today. A big family party in a balloon filled hall.  
 
Happiness. 
 
Joy. 
 
After a lifetime of shared bliss.
 
He sighed and took her up a cup of tea in bed. Hoping today would be a reasonable day for her.  And that she’d at least recognise who he was.

Thanks - Lisa X
