Your life can change on the spin of a dime…. That’s what’s been happening since October 2016. Good, Sad, up, down, then in January 2017, things stabilized and I was just me. Nothing else, just me. Going to work, and back home, routine, just me…
Fast forward to Wednesday morning the 8th February 2017, 3 minutes past 8. My phone at work rings, I answer and this male person asks to speak to me, I say it is me speaking. He says, You will never guess who this is. I reply: I don’t. He says it’s so and so speaking. I answer so and so from school? He says yes, I am sooo happy to have found you, I have been looking for you for so very long. First of all I am single he says, I quietly reply, I am single too, for the last 10 years. WHAT?? he says you have been single all this time? Yes I reply. He says I have been looking for you for more than 8 years. No ways I reply.. He says, you remember the last time I saw you, it was when my mom was in hospital and you were there too for pneumonia? yes I said how could I forget
He says you were the love of my life, I should have told you I loved you when I was 15 years old, now that I have found you I am never ever ever ever ever going to let you go.
Wow I said, you stole my heart away at school when you were in your cricket white’s, I was too shy to tell you. He said me too and damn, when I wanted to tell you, your mom took you out of school.
We are both now 57, it’s Valentine’s day, I am on top of cloud 9…. my childhood sweetheart found me, life is good today.
