The Scarf

It’s Valentine’s Day and I’m thinking of Rose.

The day she left her scarf in the car, I wasn’t sure if it was in error or on purpose.

Long after I’d dropped her at home I found the scarf tucked between the seats, still carrying the scent of lilacs, her signature scent.

I thought I should return it to her, but when I questioned her about it she said: “no, no, it’s for you, I left it as a memento and reminder of our lovely time together.”

I thought perhaps I’d been wishing too hard for the drive to have been more than it was. But now, with the scarf in my hands, I will send off this postcard in hopes that it will touch Rose’s heart and bring us together once more.
