As Time Goes By

PHOTO PROMPT – © Sandra Crook

You must remember this, that first cake you baked, it had the consistency of rubber and yet I ate it all.  I would have finished it but then you had to have a bite.  Through your stifled tears I explained that no one had made one for me before.

And when two lovers woo there are no instructions to follow.

Moonlight and love songs - never out of date, but the neighbours didn’t concur when I performed a midnight serenade.


It's still the same old story but I am glad to have you by my side as time goes by.

Work has me travelling between two cities again, which might have contributed to my absence from the prompt last week.  So this time to make amends I offer two stories.  This one is of a softer hue and the other slightly dark.

 And those who recognise the song here is the original

  4. Sweet as the word goes. I read the footnote warning me about a darker version ahead. I am headed in that direction.
