Jon Spends Quiet Day, Missing Little Evan, His 4-Year-Old Best Friend
Evan spent a couple days with us and all I heard was, “PeePee, can I tell you something? Can you help me find another game to play?” As much as he keeps me running and pulls me away from projects, hearing his little voice never gets old and I happily relent. Today, I could use an Evan fix. I saw his bat in the rain and it really made me appreciate the little human who swings it in nicer weather than we have today, so I put into words how I’m feeling….
A little car, a little train,
a little boy’s bat, in the rain…
All of these things, around I see,
And right then, it occurs to me…
All of these things, in silence wait,
They feel not love, they feel not hate…
And in my heart, I feel no joy,
For in my house, no little boy.
