She doesn’t know me (A love story)

Written by Love

It was a busy morning , when an elderly gentleman, probably in his 80s, arrived at a nursing home to have stitches removed from his thumb.He reached the doctor and said that he was in a hurry as he had an appointment after half an hour . Doctor took his vital signs and had him take a seat, knowing it would be over an hour before someone would to able to see him. The doctor saw him looking at his watch and decided, since he was not busy with another patient, he would evaluate his wound. On examining , it was well healed, so doctor talked to one of the collegue, got the needed supplies to remove his sutures and redress his wound.
While taking care of his wound, Doctor asked him if he had another doctor’s appointment this morning, as he was in such a hurry.
The gentleman told him no, that he needed to go to the nursing home to eat breakfast with his wife. Doctor inquired as to her health.
He told the doctor that she had been there for a while and that she was a victim of Alzheimer’s Disease.
As they talked, Doctor asked if she would be upset if he was a bit late.
He replied that she no longer knew who he was, that she had not recognized him in five years now.
Doctor was surprised, and asked him, that he still go every morning, even though she doesn’t know who he is ?
He smiled as he patted doctor’s hand and said, ‘She doesn’t know me, but I still know who she is.’
Doctor had to hold back tears as he left, he had goose bumps on his arm, and thought,’That is the kind of love one should do .’
True love is neither physical, nor romantic. True love is an acceptance of all that is, has been, will be, and will not be.
