One moment

The other day,

in a waiting room

of a medical scanning

centre, I saw two

elderly ladies. One

went in for her scan

while the other waited

anxiously. When she came

out they held hands,

talking quietly and

seriously about what

had been done,

been said, staring into

each other’s eyes.

Then they left

and through the

window I could see

a fervent embrace,

before they moved on,

arms around each

other, providing comfort,

very much in love.
