Waiting for the Phone to Ring

by Betty

Sitting in my chair all alone, looking out the window, just waiting for the phone to ring. Who might it be?

Maybe the pharmacy telling me my prescriptions are ready for pick up.

Maybe the doctor’s office, reminding me of my appointment tomorrow.

Maybe a salesman with a terrific offer.

Maybe a wrong number.

Maybe a neighbor calling to say “Hi.”

Maybe it’s you, “Just checking in.”

Maybe it’s long distance from the east coast, “Hi Mom.”

Maybe it will be, “Four o’clock – am I on time?”

Thank you all for calling. Dial again and –
