Writing Prompt #132

Set a timer for five minutes and then write, nonstop and without judgement, starting with the phrase, “One moment I’ll always remember is…” When the timer sounds, go back and add more descriptive physical details and imagery.

The same tears fell from her little eyes that night

While mines fell too like always,
