Life at four.


Running through the house
arms up
fists clenched
cape flying behind him.


Living and breathing
the everyday delights
of being a child
in the world.


I will save the day!
he calls out in character.


Four years ago, he saved me—
And he continues to save me daily
with his simple
presence.


He will never know how special he is to me
and how he gave me a reason
to look to the future
—again.


Life at four.
