Your eyes light up as you see each other from across the yard.
She runs to you; wobbly, smiling, arms outstretched.
You reflect her delight as you smile back, eyes twinkling. Happy. …
You bend down and draw her in gently.
I see your eyes close briefly as you rest your head on hers.
You breathe her in, savouring the moment.
I don’t know what you are both feeling, but I imagine your worries fade away.
I imagine she feels safe; loved; special.
And I imagine you feel at peace.
