The ringing phone .....

Did you ever call I wonder
and was I not there
Someone said .......If she's going to
call you ......she would have by now
For ions when the phone
rang ....and I answered
I wondered
I knew
I just knew
It would be you........
But now
When the phone does ring
I don't even think of you............

This is kind of sad, but the adjusted outlook does mean a postive move forward. It is hard to go through those times when we have to close a relationship. Enjoyed the poem.

Sadness and acceptance here I think.

Great words as always my friend.

Take care and enjoy your day.

Voted up. Sometimes when we don't get those longed for phone calls it is best to put that person out of your minds.

It's nice to get to the point, where you are not so dependent on somebody else for your self worth.

I remember it very well. Ann

There is a beauty in hope, isn't it. Keeps us alive and on our toes at all times... Even though time heals, heart never forgets. Such a beautiful poem!

Beautiful! I can relate. When my now husband and I broke up for six months pre-marriage, I always wanted to hear his voice. Then, after I had let go of wanting to hear his voice, he called. I understand that longing, that desperation of wanting to hear that voice. Such a lovely poem!

on my own interpreation, this is what happens when we moved on of the sadness and wishes from our past...i've been waiting for that last line to happen in my life.
