Autumn had always been special to Mimi. Why was that, none of us had known until one day she called us beside her bed. Her bed, that was next to the window.

She sat there looking outside as if imbibing the nature. Realizing our presence, she started mumbling as she revealed, “It was in autumn when your grandpa and I first met and we promised never to part. However, last year just after the fall, he broke his promise or so I thought as we had vowed to celebrate each autumn together. I was wrong. This autumn we shall reunite as he waits to keep his promise. We shall celebrate all autumns together….”

Without finishing the sentence, she left us forever on the first day of autumn with a smile on her face.


  1. Very lovely, and makes you feel that grandpa was right there waiting for her, for sure.

    1. Thank you Linda ma'am. So glad that you liked it.
