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.
