Material effect

Somehow the right touch

Upon the right surface

Gentle and slow-moving

Calms eroding emotions

Stills a fluttering heart

Soothes an aggrieved mind

I recall you needing a silky

When it came to your bedtime

But only now have I realized

From your birth, you were mine

Your voice touched me, gently

Your hands held me- just right

Your presence stilled my heart

How badly I still need… my silky!
