Because we can't stay away.
We have walked these footpaths and sat beneath our favourite tree before.
We have looked for the deer and rested on the fallen logs countless times.
We have studied the outlines of trees against the blue skies and watched the planes leaving their vapour trails overhead.
I'll never tire of watching you from a distance as you run, play...and fight.
One day I hope you'll understand my pride as you finally manage to climb and balance with confidence.
I stand and watch you unaware and wonder what you're thinking.
Most of all I love to catch your infectious laughs as you throw yourself into your world oblivious to everything else.
We will return to our favourite places and spaces - again and again.
It will never get tiresome; doing the same things - again and again.
With you, my favourite people in the world.
No matter what.
