Still

You still give me joy
  not in big round fistfuls 
In gentle flowers
  sent with love
In songs of happiness
  in teasing through the door
In leaps and bounds
  of strength on the stage
Or towering high
  on those precious toes
In days of separation 
  with pleas of forgiveness
A hug given and
  I will love you always
You have always been
  the joy of my heart
Nothing you do changes 
  the fact you were planted there
There you have grown
  and there you will remain
