Bottle Cap Pig by Ellis
Someday they won't have warm little bodies that climb all over me when I sit on the couch.
Someday they won't give me the things they make as tokens of how much they love me.
There will be many other important people in their lives and the intimacy of right now will fade.
Nevertheless they and I are forever shaped by the deep closeness that is now.
Both the closeness and the impending distance are as they should be.
