For Max
by Erin C
Beautiful, beautiful
blue eyed boy-
Bluer then the bluest sea

Your first mew- no sound came out!
Oh we laughed.

So gentle and timid,
You grew to be the size of a lion!
With a long monkey tail
That daddy marveled at

Always comforting Sam
Holding space
for his vulnerability

Finding your place,
Your nook
Snuggling with daddy

Your brother has called you home now

Yet you still live
You live in our hearts forever
