Were you remembering

All the baseball games

As you sat on your porch

Listening as kids played

A few blocks away

The cheers and the boos

The random loud cracks

As ball met bat

Were you thinking of youth

Would you have given anything

To go back for a day

To wear a uniform

Sit in the dugout waiting

For your chance to run

And I just wonder

Now that you are dead

Did it follow you there

Wherever “there” is

This all consuming love

Are you still remembering
