I have watched you for years now, moving from my arms to my lap and finally you climb down and you…
Your backs to me, toward your future, toward the dreams I have for you.
Together your screams of delight peppering the air above you and around me
until you collapse back into my arms or into my lap with sweaty brows and stinky feet.
For four years I measured each milestone but then I took my eyes for you for only a second and your legs were longer and learner, your voices clear and strong, your imaginations spun their own incredible stories and I was seeing more of the back of you, kisses at your hairline quickly dropped and “I love yous” quickly said before you scooted and launched yourself.
and I only hope that when you run you always learn to come back to each other’s arms.
Yes, You Run.
You Run Away With My Heart Every Single Day.
*I recently installed Instagram on my Evo Shift…I am in LOVE*
