“Arms, Necks, Locks”

Haven’t you noticed
How arms fit perfectly to necks
Like keys to locks?
My son wrapped his arms
Around my neck
This evening
And I thought
If his arms were bigger
Or my neck smaller
Neither would have fit
The other.
But his arms were just
Perfectly small
And my neck perfectly curved
To meet them.
Arms then are meant
For necks
And necks are meant
For arms
And we are meant
To give and receive
Each time a hug is
Two hearts are opened
And unlocked.
