He came home late from work and as was her daily routine she kept waiting for him, walking restlessly to and fro and time and again looking down the window in the hope that the next white car coming down the road was his but all the time she was disheartened until fifteen minutes to twelve in the night when he finally turned up.

They quickly finished with their dinner.

It was his birthday the following day and all the preparations had been done.

Daily Prompt – If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?

The day you arrived.

The way we were surprised.

The moments that we lived.

The memories that we created.

The hours that you lent.

The time that we spent.

I so wished,

that time there stopped.

The moments freezed,

and we paused.

Your preparations to wish me,

It wasn’t just a wish, you actually made the day ‘happy’.

The way my hand you hold,

That ride & the breeze so cold.

The way the surprised unfold.

The songs one after the other it rolled.

I so wished,

that time there stopped.

The moments freezed,

and we paused.

The audio of all the loved ones,

The brand new and all set cell phone.

The sketches that you drew,

The plans of you & your crew.

Those small, yet invaluable gestures,

for me are no less than any treasure.

I so wished,

that time there stopped.

The moments freezed,

and we paused.

You’re right,

“Actions speak louder than words”.

But, the way you write,

it proves, “Pen is mightier than sword.”
