Lost … And Found!

He ran to me
Chocolate smeared fingers outstretched
His bright eyes overflowing with tears
I knew this was not the time
To worry about the chocolate stains.
‘Where were you? I was so afraid…
I thought you left me and went away.’

Sticky sweet chocolate
On my whites.
A heart beating wildly
A warm hug, all was well, after all.
