The Call (XXIII)

The Call

Late one dark and lonely night
I received a call to my delight.
A voice I hadn’t heard in years,
rang out, it nearly brought me tears.
And though at first it eluded thought,
a name to go along, I caught.
And as I did we rambled on,
our years apart, we caught up on.
And now it seems we’re friends again,
though in truth, we’ve always been.
For though the miles have kept us apart,
here you’ll always be, right in my heart.
Friends we were from the start.
Friends we’ll be till life departs.

    reminds me of a friend of mine in Pa. We can be apart for long periods of time but we reconnect when talking and it’s like we were never apart. Good write it brought a smile to my face

      Thanks Lori. It was my old college roommate. It’s been several years since we last talked. 😀

      It can be great…but then perhaps in the end it turns out to be not quite what you expected.
