I don’t like to leave her

I love to see the joy on her face when she sees mine.

I love how my name sounds on her lips.

I love our meandering philosophical-political-newsy-relationship-opinionated-sports-life talks.

I love that we have so many things to discuss that we never get to them all.

It’s from her that I get my love of jewelry, my fierce patriotism, my sense of justice and my ability to stand up for myself.

It’s because of her that I walk with confidence, devour a good read, can enjoy time alone, savor the taste of home-made soup and welcome others with grace.

I chuckle when she reminds me to bring along a jacket, checks for oncoming cars when I’m the one driving us around and tells me to let her “do it” when I try to help her.

I don’t like to leave her.

I don’t like to step away not knowing when I’ll see her next.

So I never say good-bye. I just kiss her and whisper, “till next time.

And when she leans in to ask that I please thank my guys for letting me come … I tell her through my sobs that I’m the one who is thankful.

For letting me go. 

For loving me.

For being the kind of mother every child should have.

I don’t like to leave her.
