Variance Subdued

You’re a man of few words
And fewer emotions.
But when they hit you,
They hit hard.

You’re a little man
That avoids eye contact.
But when you decide to share your face
You never break away.

You’re my boy
That avoids hugs and affection.
But when it’s time for bed
And you’re tucked in tight;

You stretch out your arms,
Wrap them around my neck
Tightly pull me in
And tell me you love me.

Don’t ever change.
