The Last Phone Call

I wonder

after you breathed

your last breath

after just two days

after we talked . . .

I wonder why I forgot

to tell you how much

I appreciate you

how much

I need you

and how much

I love you

When my time comes

and I enter

the doors of Heaven

I will look for you —

will you

reach for my hand?

Can we continue

where we left off

here?

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
