A Touching Love Story

My husband is a Businessman, I love him for his steady nature, and I love the warm feeling when I lean against his broad shoulders. But just after two years of marriage, I would have to admit, that I am tired of him. The reasons of me loving him before, has now transformed into the cause of all my restlessness. I am a sentimental woman and extremely sensitive when it comes to a relationship and my feelings. My husband, is my complete opposite, his lack of sensitivity, and the inability of bringing romantic moments into our marriage has disheartened me about love.

 One day, I finally decided to tell him my decision, that I wanted a divorce.

 “Why?” he asked, shocked. “I am tired, there are no reasons for everything in the world!” I answered. He kept silent the whole night, seems to be in deep thought.

 My feeling of disappointment only increased, here was a man who can’t even express his predicament, what else can I hope from him? And finally he asked me:” What can I do to change your mind?” Somebody said it right, it’s hard to change a person’s personality, and I guess, I have started losing faith in him.

Looking deep into his eyes I slowly answered : “Here is the question, if you can answer and convince my heart, I will change my mind, Let’s say, I want a flower located on the face of a mountain cliff, and we both are sure that picking the flower will cause your death, will you do it for me?” He said :” I will give you the answer tomorrow….” My hopes just sank by listening to his response.

I woke up the next morning to find him gone, and saw a piece of paper with his scratchy handwriting, underneath a milk glass, on the dining table near the front door, that goes….

My dear, “I would not pick that flower for you, but please allow me to explain the reasons further..” This first line was already breaking my heart. I continued reading. “When you use the computer you always mess up the software programs, and you cry in front of the screen, I have to save my fingers so that I can help to restore the programs.

You always leave the house keys behind, thus I have to save my legs to rush home to open the door for you. You love traveling but always lose your way in a new city, I have to save my eyes to show you the way.

You always have the cramps whenever your “good friend” approaches every month, I have to save my palms so that I can calm the cramps in your tummy. You like to stay indoors, and I worry that you will be infected by infantile autism. I have to save my mouth to tell you jokes and stories to cure your boredom.

You always stare at the computer, and that will do nothing good for your eyes, I have to save my eyes so that when we grow old, I can help to clip your nails,and help to remove those annoying white hairs. So I can also hold your hand while strolling down the beach, as you enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful sand… and tell you the colour of flowers, just like the color of the glow on your young face…

Thus, my dear, unless I am sure that there is someone who loves you more than I do… I could not pick that flower yet, and die.. ”

My tears fell on the letter, and blurred the ink of his handwriting… and as I continue on reading…

 “Now, that you have finished reading my answer, if you are satisfied, please open the front door for I am standing outside bringing your favorite bread and fresh milk…

 I rush to pull open the door, and saw his anxious face, clutching tightly with his hands, the milk bottle and loaf of bread…. Now I am very sure that no one will ever love me as much as he does, and I have decided to leave the flower alone…

 That’s life, and love. When one is surrounded by love, the feeling of excitement fades away, and one tends to ignore the true love that lies in between the peace and dullness.

 Love shows up in all forms, even very small and cheeky forms, it has never been a model, it could be the most dull and boring form.. . flowers, and romantic moments are only used and appear on the surface of the relationship. Under all this, the pillar of true love stands and that’s our life. Love, not words win arguments.

    Excellent Sara. These are the small injections which I/we receive from you, which helps me/us focus on every word written with simple understanding to a lay person like me/most of us & helps me/us be alert & pause for a moment & say to myself/ourselves ??????? what am I/we doing, how did I/we behave with specially my wife & child, parents, brother, sister etc since so long & that pause transforms me/us into rethinking & changing my/our ways & helps me/focus on how to talk loving and soothing words to my/our loved one. God Bless You Sara

    oh people I find that this story isn’t romantic at all , this man in the story is only wants to save his life “legs , eyes …….” and also save his marriage life with his wife with a very intelligent way

    speechless Sara ! no word can describe how amazing is this story 

    • Sara October 31, 2011 at 8:39 AM #

      Great, you liked it Muath. Share it with others as well.

  46. Aboki October 31, 2011 at 8:05 AM #

    Sara… how much more could one ask for…
    You’ve my day, I’ve had to sob quietly and I’ve had to laugh inwardly at the reality that this story brings to fore.
    It says a lot about the subliminal nature of humans and their ability to see reasons beyond the reasonable doubt if intentions were expressed as explicitly as possible to their understanding.

    I really love this short and inspirational story.

    I’ve learnt a lot in life and I believe that if you see a flawless relationship, friendship and understanding between 2 persons, it is very real that one of them is making a great deal of sacrifice.

    Thanks for sharing this very beautiful story…

    • Sara October 31, 2011 at 8:38 AM #

      Aboki, thanks a lot for your Motivational comments. Its our readers response that keeps us going.

  47. Mmaster23 October 31, 2011 at 7:50 AM #

    oh well.

    I hope we get the morals behind this story. Our life is full of boredom and grief….
    If we reach the level of loving each other and praying fo rthis glorious gift.. we will continue to survive as human beings..

    Thanks Sarah, you always come up with the good stuff…

    Women, from time to time, need romantic proofs from men to revive their love. However, perfect love is nothing but a myth. There is only, if possible, faithfulness and passion.

    ya allah! this made me cry……

    • NAEEM October 31, 2011 at 10:34 AM #

      U SHOULD WRITHE “ALLAH” OR ATLEAST “Allah”. Not with small.

      • Abier October 31, 2011 at 11:15 AM #

        okey, just edited it 😉
        the reason why i wrote this with small letters was that i just wrote it in a hurry….

        My Dear Mr. Naeem  this Arabic Style  Ya Allah

      • Ahmed Shumayal March 6, 2012 at 7:27 AM #

         It actually isn’t important.
        Allah is in English and should be written with a starting capital because of the rule for writing proper nouns.
        It has no religious basis.
        Allah is actually in Arabic and I know you know that.
        Peace 🙂
