After the Teats are Dry

Different times throughout life
foundlings find their way home
and many were welcome along the way
but all they did was suck too long
insisting on nursing after the teats were dry

Love is reciprocal and it is easy to give
but when someone needs to be on their own
refusing to grow up after their time limit
the heart grows weary, the boundaries stretched

trying to love enough and give more
with another mouth to feed
long after the teats are dry.
