It’s a fixed routine, come rain, come shine, every night, around eightish__there they’re, taking their customary stroll around the park, the faces glowing bright under the glare of the strobe lights.
‘Three Musketeers’, that’s what I call them__the woman, slightly older; the men, much younger__their arms entwined around one another, all eyes glinting like thousand watt bulbs.
Happiness personified, that’s what they are.
I whiff of nostalgia singed with regret brushes past my scarred mindscape.
‘Maybe, just maybe, that woman’s me, and those two handsome young men clasping her arms my sons.
Or, just the onset of dementia?
