Memories....

She took out the old album and settled herself on the rest chair, her husband used to sit on. She adjusted her specs to have a look at those smiling pictures, her only companion in utter loneliness, for the millionth time. She touched them tenderly. Memories wheeled once again. Tears strolled down her wrinkled cheek.
