Until He Came Along

I never had a boy carry my books.

I never thought I wanted a boy to carry my books.

Until today,

When he said
“Mamo, I’ll carry those for you”.

And he took my two books by Hemingway

With his Star Wars book

And carried them to the cashier for me.

I never needed a boy to do for me, what I could do for myself.

Until he came along and offered.
