Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Don't Worry, Little Man

It was his second birthday
He fell at the playground
And before I could get there
She scooped him up
Sitting him on the bench beside her
Rubbing his back
Holding him tight
Because she understood even then
That these things worked to calm him
And she said
It's okay, I've got you
A year later
An autism diagnosis
Nearly a decade has passed since this picture
And she still shows me
And him
Over and over
That she's still got him
And I'm so glad
That he's got her
