The alarm rings

I shut it off & awake for a new day

I see the light beside my phone

It's blinking & I check the message

I love you

I know you'll miss me

I'm sorry

Please know you'll never truly be without me

It's your voice I hear

But I can't understand the message you left

I hang up & listen to it again

But still it makes no sense

I love you

I know you'll miss me

I'm sorry

Please know you'll never truly be without me

I listen closely again

And now I'm scared

Don't tell me this is your last

Don't let this be your last call

I love you

I know you'll miss me

I'm sorry

Please know you'll never truly be without me

The phone rings in my hand

Immediately I answer it hoping it's you

Instead it's your sister saying what I fear

I close my eyes & hear your voice again

I love you

I know you'll miss me

I'm sorry

Please know you'll never truly be without me
