Late Night Text

To my beloved son, who lives
Clear across the country where
Fire is raging and 
Covid has found
   a Home.

"Just sending my love.
Not going to beg you to 
Come Home.  
Even though that is what a
     wants to do during
Times like these.

I know you are being careful. 
But if you are not, 
Don't tell me."
