The Playground



Off we go to the playground
To laugh and jump and run. 
Holding your hand on the way, 
Our bodies poised for fun.

Dizzy from the merry-go-round, 
Holding tight to your hand. 
You keep me safe and grounded, 
Protected from the unplanned.

The teeter totter goes up and down, 
Insides all aflutter.
You fill me with joy; toes to nose 
Laughing like a nutter.

Then we swing without a sound, 
Lost in our own thoughts.
Where to next?
What is left?
...

A glance askance turns frowns around,
swinging higher and higher.
I grab your hand; away we jump
Unafraid of what will transpire.

No matter what happens
We're in it together,
Love, trust, care, and hope.
You and me, forever.
