I listened to your voicemail at 3:21 am today
Or is it tomorrow?
I’m lost, but it doesn’t matter
Because I always have your voice messages to reorient me
Working the night shift
Finally took a break
Sat on a bench
Watched the trees sway
And I listened to your messages
It was perfect
Your messages are like that first moment
When I hit the couch after a long day
Like the relief of a cough drop
When I have a sore throat
Like taking off my shoes
When I’ve walked in heels for 18 hours
Like a piece of chocolate!!
Anytime really 🙂
Like when it’s raining
But then the sun comes out!
Like the simple relief of a cool breeze
On a hot summer day
I save each one
I savor each one
