 Waiting for a phone call

 Hoarding memories surrounding

 A nest of sorrow

 She's deep asleep

 I watch her...


 dreaming dreams of happy times but gone...

 Busy walls with mounted smiles

 A mute TV screen displaying a tragic comedy

 Curtains shielding tears

 Three phone devices that do not ring...

 I must go back to my reality

 I cry, she cries...

 Our phones do not even sound busy...

 Invisible wires of the soul crash in memories...

    It's good to see you posting again, Iolanda! Memories are indeed precious and they are a gift, I believe to give us hope; to remind us that there is a tomorrow...if we persevere. Happy New Year, my friend, filled with blessings and good will! Love, Annalise
