Window – The Daily Prompt!

The Daily Post Prompt – Window.  Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. 

It has become her daily ritual

To watch them play football

As they run about on the field

Chasing the round object 

Every day she sits and thinks about him

When he used to be a part of the team

That ran round the field sweating it out

In the name of a football game

Now, memories are left to linger

Fond memories of those wonderful moments

Moments of togetherness, moments of shared love

Moments when life was a splendour

But time changed everything

A sudden shift in the scheme of things

And the inevitable happened

Life became all blue and incomplete

Sitting at that favourite spot again

She recalled looking out of the window that fateful day

And saw a body lie still on the field

While the other boys gathered round the lifeless boy

How heart breaking to find out minutes later

That the lifeless body was her only son

Oh yes! Her only son

A tear trickled down her eyes

She wiped it out with nostalgia

As she reached for her cup of coffee
