Winning

Always a Winner

Did I win?
Your young face beaming from ear to ear as the coin slapped against my hand
“Of course you did my pet”
That was the way of it, you and I.
I couldn’t bear to see you saddened, not even for a second.
Didn’t want to see your smile drop into a petulant frown

Wouldn’t let you lose,
Could never let you down
