10,000 Roses and Promises

I saw her tears flowing non-stop as she hugged the person in front of her. The warmth of each other's love enveloped the scene but it was not the actual picture. 

I saw the scene in the renowned 10,000 Roses earlier. I personally heard the two lovers taking a vow of love for each other. 

"When I return, will I still see you? Can I still see that smile painted on your face?" one said. 

I couldn't hear the other one except of a nod. Then I realized that they promised an eternity. It came in my mind about the promises I used to say to the person I recently loved. 

My adoration. My  promise to stay. My love that I so willingly said. But again, why is the creepling wind and the clouded sky seemed to remind me that I broke a promise of eternity. 

Then I remembered our memories together. How I wrapped my arms around my love's slim body. How I kissed the tender lips. How this love's young heart overflowed with mine. 

I remembered everything. I remembered the promises we once said in 10,000 Roses as each white led roses brightened the evening when we were still together. 

I looked back at the couple. I saw them hugging each other. Then I thought of myself - how I lose someone instantly and breaking all our promises we made for each other. How I easily let go of the love that was so supposed to blossom. 

Then the sky heard my prayer. It poured out that heavy rain as I wiped my tears away from my face. 

10,000 Roses maybe an ordinary destination but for me it became a venue of a broken heart and failed promises.
