and he didn't know what to do as she came to rest only inches from him

he didn't know what she wanted

she was so tall
much taller than the other people he'd seen
and when he climbed up to his feet he couldn't even reach her knees

and he remained still for a moment
and then he took a step closer to her to show that he wasn't afraid yet

and then she leaned down
and offered her arms
and made such a smile
and for the first time in his life the little boy felt tired

then there was a perfect yawn
that stretched out his iron jaw
he was so used to holding tension there

she wrapped him in her glowing hands
and lifted up the little man
and with a finger she pushed back his hair
