A SILENT PHONE CALL

You called to see if I was well

But never said a word to me.

You heard the "yes" from someone else

So in the end you didn't see.

I'd hoped to get a chance to say

That I miss you and I love you.

And you've been gone since yesterday

So I had hoped you'd say it too.

I watched them pass the phone along

And I just waited for my time.

The others talked with you for long

But you left me an empty line.
