The phone call

Tags: love, phone, sad,

The phone call you don't want

It is always 
hard to get that call 
the one you know what's it for 
how do you answer it

The phone rings 
the throat is dry 
can't pick up the phone
how do I answer

What do you say 
hello 
hey 
what's up

You think 
can it be something else 
can there be good news 
can it be just a sales call

Hello 
(crying on the other end)
are you okay
talk to me brother 
is everything all right

He
(says) 
is gone 
he went this morning 
around 8am

What
do you say 
what can I do 
is there anything I can say

Why 
do I feel bad 
was I not there
is my heart hurting 
am I in pain

I knew the day was coming
but it is still a shock 
a jolt

Brother 
I am here 
everything will be okay
I am sorry

May god bless 
my friend 
my idol 
my uncle

Rest in peace

I love you
