A Call

My phone is ringing,
my heart is silent,
my being eagerly waiting
for you to answer.

One voice, I hear, sweet and tender –
A distance – what is?
My soul is holding yours tightly, now,
and nothing is between us.

Sitting on a bench
perceiving the softness of your sounds,
I am hugging my memory of you
but only empty air
in my arms… R.I.P.
