Quite melty

You cuddle into me
in the mornings
like I am a rock
and you are water
folding your arms and legs and face
around every divot of my shape
only this morning
you tuck your little hands
into my belly
and you tell me
I have become
quite melty
which is true
and I hold my breath
thinking I liked it better
when I was a rock
but knowing that you
will remember
how I spoke about my body
as your own changes one day soon
so I say
isn’t it the best
and you cuddle in closer
than you ever have
