Neville

Summer 19..

Summer 19..

 

Somewhere on a west country couchette

they fell in love

and so completely, they both missed their

destination stops

But who cared, it was the summer of 19 ..

    I love this Neville, so much emotion in so few words sounds to me as though they were on their very own destination together. Gorgeous. πŸ’–

      I remember the year I met her - 1902 I think. I had just finished in the Boer War, being very old!

                  Imagine two people, complete strangers, heading out to meet their partners, then fate strikes. The rest is history.

                      I did have a friend who's new wife the very next day after the wedding said she couldn't remember who he was, even though they'd been together for years. She walked away from the marriage and hooked up with her girlfriend. He was brave, though, he came into the bar like a man. lol

                      A long lost love
                      Or eternal love missed today
