Your Voice

I hear your voice on the other end

And I feel warm

The chills reduce

My tears dry up

I hold my hand out

In the empty air beside me

I pretend it’s you by my side

Whispering in my ear

Sharing an inside joke

Laughing aloud

Looking at each other

Reading our thoughts

I hold my hand out

In the empty air beside me

I pretend you’re not so far away

I pretend you’re there

Right next to me

 

I hear your voice on the other end

I hear your hello

Your sleepiness

Your tiredness

I hear your concern, your worry

I hear your voice

And I’m alright

 

I hold my hand out in the empty air beside me

I pretend you’re there

I pretend you’re here

Next to me

I pretend I don’t miss you

I pretend I wasn’t crying

I pretend I wasn’t feeling like

The world had emptied and abandoned

Me all alone

 

I pretend everything’s alright

Until I hear your voice

And everything is alright.

 

I hear your voice on the other end

I hear your laughter

Your smile

In your voice

I hear your love, your happiness

I hear your frustration, your sadness

I hear it all…

When I hear it all, I hold my hand out

In the empty air beside me

Where you used to be

And I feel warm

My tears dry up

And I feel, I’m alright.
