A Wish , Not Lost ( 55 on Friday 2014 - 2 )


So, here we are, with the 55 on Friday Prompt 2 on Write Tribe.

This time, the prompt is " how I wished"....

____________________________________________________________________________

The most beautiful bride I had ever seen, looked at me, unaware of my virtual presence.

Her eyes were smiling, though sad.

How I wished to be there !!

But, a soldier’s life !

Thanks to technology, I could witness , with moist eyes, my daughter’s wedding on my mobile through live streaming.

God bless the lovely couple !!
