imageIt was the night before my wedding. The happiest day of my life was imminent and yet, in the thrill of it all, I found a tear meandering its way down my cheek.

I let it fall. It seemed only fitting that with the casting out of past love letters, cards and photographs, a tear should seal their demise. Now was the time to let go and parting is such sweet sorrow. I read, gazed and held them all one last time before surrendering them to the open bin bag. Where they now belonged. Except that one letter. When you told me you loved me.


The prompt for this week’s 100 word challenge is…parting is such sweet sorrow…
