If I could take you with me. Hold you in my arms. Share those special moments when Lola does something extraordinary or Taya makes me laugh. If I could have your shoulder to cry on when I feel sad. Your fingers to rub my back when I can't fall asleep. You to talk to when I have no idea what I am doing. To tell me everything is going to be o.k. You to buy me "veal" tofu and tell us that tuna really isn't fish because it's in a can. You to walk with on Goose Rocks Beach. And you to call when I need advice, a recipe or a hug.
But I can't take you with me. You are not here. But if I could I would and I would never let you go.
