The phone call came
the one we dread
the bell tolling for the dead.

As I lay in my bed
with visions raging through my head
thrisking me through the layers of
unconscious sleep.

Who can this be?
what do they want?
as you flip thorough the files
of faces in your mind
Did someone die?

Your heart begins to race as you
flip from face to face
who can it be, oh please let me see,
this must not be a call for me.

Now fully awake from a fitful slumber
you hear at the other end of the line
Forgive me please I have a wrong number.

That's one time for sure that you're glad it was a wrong number.

Nona I've found myself thinking just like you a few times...probably because my close friend Margaret passed away and my mom is 73.
I called her one evening and a man answered and ask who I was..  I told him I was James and he said he had some bad news for me..so I said what is it..and he told me Margaret had passed away in her sleep the night before..I told him that was bad news..death waits for no one.   James
