I remember when I learned to ride a bike.
I was on my own.
No mum, no dad.
Just me, wheeling round my local estate.
Freewheeling, and then it just…’clicked’.
I was filled up with joy, elated.
I wanted to share it with someone.
But I was alone.
I never wanted this to happen to you though, son.
We’ve done it together, me and you.
In the park, on a bright sunny day.
Mummy and your sister are watching, over near the swings.
You are so happy, a huge smile spread across your face.
You’ve got it, it’s ‘clicked’ for you, like it did for me.
But you’re not alone.
We’ll remember this day for years to come.
And we’ll always be together.
