I saw you smile

Yes, you the dad in the big black SUV.

I saw you drop your kid off at the High School.

Than I saw you see us waiting for you to acknowledge Emily before I would let her cross in front of your big SUV.

She got half way through, suddenly turned around, came back to me quickly and kissed me goodbye… than she crossed the street.

I saw you at that time, I saw you smile! You saw Emily kiss me goodbye and it made your day.

I don’t know what you were thinking but I would like to imagine that for a small moment you were a little envious of our relationship. That for a really short moment before remembering that Emily needed help with her book bag and with crossing the street… For a small moment you wished you had a goodbye kiss or at least a hug…

As I smiled back at you I thought…”I’m a lucky mom, I get goodbye kisses… Almost every single day!”
