The Box

How many times have I held your hand? Hugged you? Kissed you?

But the first time I ever held you in my arms it almost dropped me to my knees.

Instead of caressing your soft white whiskers, I was running my hands over polished oak.

Instead of rubbing your broad shoulders, there were only square corners.

And I wept.
