It wasn’t that my toddler couldn’t be without me

It was that she didn’t understand why the person that stays put

Was grabbing the keys and heading out the door spontaneously.

Crying in to my shoulder she asked, where are you going and

What is happening there?

I sat with her in my lap, arms wrapped around my neck for five minutes whispering in her ear.

Disentangling myself I handed her to Husband

When I made it out of the house and down the road, right where I would have been

An accident bottlenecking, blocking the road.
