Love found me today.
In the car you stroked my fingers.
I lost you for a moment when I arrived home. I sat by the window waiting for you to reappear. I closed my eyes and could soon feel your presence.
You were right behind me when I hung clothes outside; ever present, watching over my shoulder.
We played hide and seek in the yard. You hid behind trees but I never tired of finding you, time and time again. Every time I did, you embraced me. You would leave me with a smile and flushed cheeks.
These bones of mine kept moving trying to keep up with your constant motion.
Near the end of the day we stopped at the park to enjoy the last hour we would have together today. We both knew I’d see you again soon enough. Even still, I wished you could stay that little bit longer. I didn’t want you to go. Not right now. Not just yet. The last thing you did was kiss my forehead. I sat on the bench and watched you go until I could no longer see you.
My soul is thankful for the day we shared. You have left me with a warm and full heart.
If I concentrate enough I can still feel the warmth of your touch. Until you return I will suffer a sadness so profound.
I love you, son. I love you, sun.
