The Call

Hi, how are you?

How nice to hear from you, you really have no clue.

I know you have a lot to do,

But it’s always good to hear from you.

You make me laugh, you make me smile.

Always nice to chat with you awhile.

To call you, I wish I had the time

But time is just so hard to find.

Just remember that I love you

And call me again real soon.

Or, maybe, with everything I do

I’ll find the time to call you, too.

    The sad truth of our busy lives, losing contact with people, family and friends. There is only so much one can put into a day and with all our pressures and responsibilities, connection must be a constant work in progress. Nicely penned Shannon.

    Love the flow here and the rhyming. Your poetic words express the truth our busy live give us little chance to call friends.

    How true this is. Sometimes we need to pick up the phone or step away from our busy existence for a while. Sad how we lose c9ntact because life keeps moving. Good piece

      Life will always keep moving. And I find that even social media doesn’t help all that much.
