You’re playing with your friends.
Maybe you’re playing by yourself.
Your room is packed with all sorts of toys that feed your evergrowing imagination.
I’m far away, on a vacation, or sick at home in bed.
My mind ponders on what you’re doing, where you are.
I should be focusing on myself, enjoying my time away.
The little bits of yesterday’s excursions keep lapping into view.
We were on a row boat and you wanted to boast your strength, give me a little break.
Your tired, small arms tugged and pulled and got that obstinate boat to move.
We laughed at the thought of small you rowing this large boat, while I sat back.
We experienced a different world then. We experienced a shift in our world and our perpections of it .
What seemed so daunting before,
changed to something challenging and beautiful.
Your happy eyes keep coming into my visage as I begin to close my eyes.
A gorgeous epiphany elopes from the zenith to grant me with this gift.
This gift is the understanding that we’re healing.
You’re growing, meeting each new obstacle with strides so high, mountain tops cannot touch.
I’m learning through you that I can heal too and am healing by the grace of working with you.
Thank you for accepting me.
Trusting in me.
Letting me help you and breaking down my barriers of concrete.
Seeing you smile, and your happy eyes, taught me a valuable lesson.
We all are and will be a treasure to someone.
