Although I would like to see you,
You don’t need to come home.
Even though I am terrified you will
Fade into fact if you die,
You shouldn’t come home.
When I was younger, watching baseball,
I would, with my mind and fandom,
Push the ball into the strike zone so that
Tony Gwynn would have an easier time
Hitting a home run.
He had the ability, I just wanted to help.
I’m sending you bullet vests and invisibility cloaks
You don’t need to come home yet.
You sure as heck need to be able to though, and
Don’t you forget it.
