Prayer for the Future

I worry about you like you worried about Chloe;

Would she be happy in Heaven?

Would someone throw the ball for her?

Take her for walks along the blue pastures

Of the sky?

But I can’t rescue you from adulthood.

All I can do is like I used to do when you played

in the Nationals,

Cheer from the sidelines

Wish you fangs and claws to fight off the trolls,

The sting of the scorpion

A heart as fierce as Balerion, the dragon

From Game of Thrones,

But peaceful and playful as Puff, that magic dragon

From Honalee.
