Just then a strong breeze blew in and the moon disappeared behind the clouds. Everything was enveloped  in  a  darkness permeated with sadness. Startled, they both looked at each other. The cruel hands of age had withered once blossom-like faces and strong sculpted bodies. With a desperate sigh, their eyes misted but this was momentary. The next moment, clouds parted and moonlight flooded all around them. Both looked up, their eyes shining like stars. With a smile, they said, “So what if life is like autumn now? There once was spring...when masses of flowers bloomed...whose fragrance still perfumes the air. We have lived a full life. We have drunk its cup to our heart’s fill.” And holding hands, they walked inside the house with steady steps.
