What I Was Thinking About At The Office Today

Someday L. will fall down
And get scrapes on the heels of her hands
The kind of scrapes with little pieces of gravel stuck inside

And I might not be there to give her a kiss
Or hold her tight when she cries

  3. Thanks for the lovely comments, dear readers!
