He’s an old man in his 80’s, started to lose his health and part of his memory.. he can remember or forget all around him but cannot forget her, she’s his sweetheart, partner, friend, woman and wife.. She’s the one who walked with him this journey of 65 years together..
What do you expect of a man and a woman in their 80’s and spent around 65 years together? I mean how do you imagine their life and their relationship? I believe the first image would be, two oldies sitting in the backyard or living room and unable to move or talk.. or maybe talk nonsense..
This woman had to go to her man’s brother house to be with them after the death in their family, he couldn’t move and was not told about this incident so he wouldn’t be sad.. she spent 3 days from morning to night with them, praying for the dead and wishing the others a happy life with the warmest and most innocent smile on earth.
But he, was unable to move as he used to, staying in bed unless someone moves him to the living room.. he used to ask about her every day of those three days, “where’s she? where’s she?” he missed her for sure. On the third day, he did not see her for few hours and already asked about her many times.. missed her the most! and kept asking then got a little upset when it turned 8 pm and she’s not around him.. his daughters and grandkids around him but not her.. so he kept asking them “where is she? where’s your mother?”
Finally, she’s back! entered the room with a lovely shining smile on her face, and his face suddenly bloomed like a flower in first days of spring, hugged the sun after a long winter. she came close to him, he grabbed her and kissed her forehead with a smile.. made us cry and smile at the same time. She innocently said: “Now I’m sure after all these years he still loves me 🙂 ” and that made her even happier.
That happened yesterday, and they are my grandparents. My example for a happy 65 (and counting) years of marriage. May Allah give them a long life together..
This is Love ♥
