Down the platform I saw him there,
His face unsure, a focused stare.
As he walks along in daddy’s step,
Not knowing his own reaction yet.
But then as if it comes to him,
His pace it quickens, his face a grin.
And then he’s running his arms out wide,
No longer able to cover and hide,
The delight in mummy’s return from away,
For him it’s been a long few days.
As they reach and envelope one another,
Mummy’s heart it beats, a flutter.
And did she see across his eyes?
The glint of a tear, happiness inside,
As his arms lock firm and really tight,
There is a squeeze full of his tiny might.
They separate and smile together,
Beaming joy of a love forever.
And as his warm little hand slips into mine,
I pin to my heart this moment in time.
