Some things matter… 


Some things are not a 
big deal
i guess
like tennis balls…
chew toys…
me and you…
i guess
i wonder…
if you had been born
would we have played 
in green fields 
until 
we both came home 
smelling so much 
like earthy things 
your mother would have made 
us both
take baths?
Were 
you
afraid 
before 
IT 
happened?
like
 i 
am afraid…?
i wish you were here…
and would tell me everything is
going to be OK
is it going to be ok?
i wish…
i wish
we could have gone on 
other walks
instead of this one
but i want you to know… 
before they put me 
to sleep…
when 
i
close
my eyes 
i will dream
of you… 
and will look for you
in heaven’s wide open spaces..
i will be the one 
with a red tennis ball 
so when 
we finally meet
like we should have met
can we please oh please 
finally play
like we should have played?
if only…
if only…
… well you know…
i wish you… 
i wish I 
would have…
mattered
