An elderly woman who receives a letter from her long-lost love, prompting her to take a journey to find him.

Granny and her letter

By Mohammed yassar ArafathPublished 2 months ago 3 min read

Mrs. Davis had lived a long and fulfilling life. She had been married to her late husband for over 50 years and had raised two children with him. Despite being content with her life, there was always a lingering sense of sadness in her heart. She had never quite forgotten about her long-lost love, John, whom she had met in her youth and had parted ways with due to circumstances beyond their control.

It was a rainy day in April when Mrs. Davis received a letter in the mail. The handwriting on the envelope was unfamiliar, but she recognized the name immediately. It was from John. He had found her through a mutual friend and had tracked her down after all these years. He wrote that he was sorry for how things had ended between them and that he had never forgotten about her.

Mrs. Davis was overwhelmed with emotions upon reading the letter. She had never expected to hear from John again, and now, she couldn't help but wonder what might have been if they had stayed together.

Over the next few weeks, Mrs. Davis found herself unable to focus on anything else. She would spend hours rereading John's letter, imagining what it would be like to see him again. Despite her old age, she was determined to find John and see if they could rekindle their relationship.

It wasn't until several months later that Mrs. Davis decided to take action. She packed her bags and set out on a journey to find John, armed with only the address he had provided in his letter.

The journey was long and arduous, but Mrs. Davis persevered. She traveled across the country, through mountains and valleys, and finally arrived at John's doorstep.

John was waiting for her, and as soon as he saw her, he ran to her and embraced her tightly. They stood there, holding each other for what seemed like an eternity, tears streaming down their faces.

Over the next few days, Mrs. Davis and John caught up on lost time. They talked about their lives, their children, and their memories. They took long walks in the countryside and shared meals together, savoring every moment they had together.

Mrs. Davis knew that her time with John was limited, and she savored every moment she spent with him. She knew that she had made the right decision in coming to find him, and that even though they had spent most of their lives apart, they had never truly forgotten each other.

As she prepared to leave, John gave her a small wooden box. "Open it when you get home," he said, smiling.

When Mrs. Davis returned home, she opened the box and found a small note inside. It read, "You were always the love of my life." Mrs. Davis knew that even though they had grown old and had lived separate lives, their love had never truly faded away.

In the months that followed, Mrs. Davis and John stayed in touch. They wrote letters and talked on the phone, sharing stories about their lives and reminiscing about old times. It was as if they had picked up right where they left off so many years ago.

One day, Mrs. Davis received a call from John's daughter. She was calling to let Mrs. Davis know that John had passed away peacefully in his sleep. Mrs. Davis was devastated, but she took comfort in the fact that she had been able to reconnect with John before he passed away.

At John's funeral, Mrs. Davis felt a sense of peace wash over her. She had been able to say goodbye to her long-lost love, and she knew that he was finally at peace.

As she left the cemetery, Mrs. Davis couldn't help but smile.
