I’m off on Friday.
For 10 days.
From life and all it’s responsibilities.
But my darling.
How do I let go of what is etched upon me?
Who will chase you around corners?
Push you on the swing?
Let you eat a banana when you’ve got a snotty nose?
Your outfits are going to be a mismatch.
Who will run tender fingers through your hair?
I’ll be free to visit the bathroom alone.
But what will you do?
We’ve been buddies again lately.
Found our rhythm.
We got our love language back.
Just don’t miss me too much and I’ll do the same.
Then it’s back to you and me buddy.
And our little wonderland of love and pain.
Push and pull.
Baths and noodles.
Hang in there my sweet.
And look after your Papa.
It’s harder on him than you.
It’ll always be.
