Her last moments…

Posted by AtPeace on October 28, 2005

*A true story*

I watched in agony as the light flickered out of her eyes. ‘Can’t you please do something?’, she seemed to ask me pleadingly… Oh, how I wished I could!! But the fact was glaring at me in the face. She had but a few moments to live and there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. And I chose to do the only thing that was left – stay with her for her final moments.

I held her in my arms and watched in pain. I knew I would miss her like hell. It isn’t easy to let go of a loved one, someone who has been with you for more than 2 years – every second of those two long years. She was always there when I needed her – to share my happiness, confusion, loneliness, my tears… everything. And here I was, not able to do anything at all for her, exactly when she needed my help.

She looked into my eyes helplessly and I watched her, just as helplessly. I finally lay her on the bed and turned away. The pain was too much to bear.

* * * * *

A few minutes later, the light finally flickered out of her eyes and she passed away into another world, as I watched, unsuccessful at stifling my sobs.

PS: This morning, I came to office and there’s power here. So, I was finally able to recharge my mobile here, and she came back to life. Hurray!!!

    Btw, Scudie, why shld I even try to write like someone else… Should I either set a trend or.. follow one? Can’t I simply write what comes to my mind?
