“Red Light”

I caught a red light
on my drive to work;
in a sub-division.

I watched a young mother
cradle her baby;
the sitter came to meet them.

She kissed his head
I could hear her say;
“Oh, I love you”.

She slowly hands him over
he smiles his sweet smile;
he knows the sitters face.

One last long kiss
she turns to leave;
she quickly waves goodbye.

The sitter stands waiting
she waves his little hand;
they watch her leave the drive.

Nostalgia fills my car
I kiss my baby goodbye;
the red light turns to green.

    Such a lovely moment. Sometime red lights can open gateways to speed us where we need to go…..
