The Phone Call

Distance separates lovers and friends
Journey of destiny and of strive
One of tacit, for the silent speaker

While exploration 
Brings as joy of enlightenment
New discovery and awaking

Cold the heart goes when thoughts of love ones 
Not seen, not heard from,  
For a while comes to mind

On the starving feel of emotions need
Like a draught invasion on fertile land, 
Quietly the heart cries for completeness find

Then a phone call out of the blue
Heard like ghost voice  
Shock at first prompt it brings

Instance excitements 
With joy to be had
Oh my darling I have missed you so
