don't lose your child

Rather than say goodbye you say it was fun.

make me
your smile, your praise, your acknowledgement was what I was working for
someone I respect validate me

it's a smile
a high five
a hug
skipping where you used to walk
an idea, a purpose, a goal

I realized today I was five years old.

She didn't have me at hello.
It was the you say it was fun part when she clearly stated, "It's not the what. It's the why."

"I have a feeling you're going to blow my mind."

Today I am grateful for a lesson in intention and the child in me who still loves to cheer because of the cheers she hears.
