A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Glimpsed Mum and Dad together again.

by LetTheWolfin on November 30, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I saw my parents together, holding hands, happily strolling down the street and me yelling suddenly, "it's my Mum AND my Dad!!! It's my DAD!!" I dashed over to Dad and jumped up onto him putting my legs around him like an excited child and just like my kids do to me.

And then I woke up.

At least every time I glimpse him in my dreams he's happy and smiling. But he is only in my dreams now. And somewhere better than here entertaining the masses doubtless :)
