His Eyes


"I love you", he said before leaving.

I stood motionless, quietly watching the pain in his eyes. I don't know why he came here everyday. Who was he? They said I was suffering from amnesia, but how could I not remember the fact that I loved him. Even his eyes don't seem to help me.

  8. Sadly if she has dementia in one form or another, she won't remember. What a thump in the gut that was.
