Change

He was trying to remember the promise he made to her.

nay he was trying to remember her.

He was searching frantically and sifting through his diaries as it was his habit to write his every thought there.

And there it was, a picture of her, His beautiful Wife who came everyday to meet him in his room..

He wondered why did he forget her, after all it wasn't like him .. he was a genius who remembered everything but not anymore.

.................................
..................................
..................................

Then he saw the entry for that day when he made the promise to her.

She asked him to promise her that "He will never change." and he answered "I Won't".

But he was trying to remember what made him change.

Tears rolled down his cheeks as he could not remember at all.

He didn't want to change, He Promised not to change .. but he changed none the less.

After all Alzheimer slowly changes who you are till you are no longer yourself.



P.S. - I am writing after a long time so a small post this time may be make it bigger next time. Love to be back.

  11. 'He didn't want to change, He Promised not to change .. but he changed none the less.'

    This can be said about almost anyone if you come to think of it. We change when we don't want to and chase change when we it doesn't hit us.

    Thumbs up for the post.
