In the beginning, time stood still.
And then, the breath that kept my heart pumping, vanished.
The smile you flashed at me, took it all away.
I couldn’t breathe.
Your eyes captivated me into submission.
I was at a lose for words.
Something inside told me to hold on. And yet, I found my fingers letting go.
I watched you leap and play, with so much joy.
It brought a tear to my eye.
The realization left me with sadness, that I couldn’t cage you and keep you close.
I needed to left you free and watch you from afar.
You came to me and sat before my feet, with wonder in your eyes.
I smiled at you and touched your cheek.
“I love you,” my eyes whispered.
I love you too, I heard your heart shout.
Watching you leave left me with a bitter sweet taste that I couldn’t spit out.
It’ll be okay. I know you will return….
My sweet prince.
