Dear characters from screen and page who live inside my mind,
I take comfort in knowing that you’re with me all the time.
When I am sad and wish for comfort and gentle moral might
You wipe away my tears, sweet Qui-Gon Jinn, my Jedi Knight.
When I need a clever way to see a hard task through,
Sly Loki, you inspire me and I know just what to do.
When I am struggling to find the good in others,
Luke Skywalker, you show me how you did it with your father.
When anguish steals away my joy and tears my soul apart,
I beg of you, oh, Davy Jones, cut out my aching heart!
Whenever something leaves me in a state of great confusion,
Sherlock Holmes, you deduce and lead me to a solution.
Whenever I am bored and life feels far too commonplace,
My fictional friends, you come and bring a smile to my face.
