You called me on the phone today
And said, "Sweet One, how are you?"
You act like we spoke yesterday
But it's more like a month or two.

We speak of things so trivial
When really from the start
I long to tell you more, my love
Like how you hold my heart.

I'd tell you how I miss your touch
Your eyes, your voice, your smile
But to you it's a race already won
Pursuing not worth the while.

I realize now you know these things
This is just a game you play
To see if your love hold over me
Has lessened or gone away.

My eyes are open, I see the light
Can it be I'm finally free?
Maybe next time you call, I won't pick up
Thank You, God, for Caller ID!

Nay, if our wits run the Wild-Goose chase, I am done:
For thou hast more of the Wild-Goose in one of thy wits,
Than I am sure I have in my whole five.

"this is United States calling, are we reaching?"...alas, caller ID is useless when it comes to international calls and in a lot of other instances as well

Nan--thank you for noticing! I do hate to end on a whiny note...most of the time : )

Elvira--so true, maybe an answering machine in order to screen those calls?
