the voice

It has been four years since I last heard your voice.

Wanting to hear you laugh, talk, assure, and even disagree, I press your number with my shaky finger.

I know better, but my heart still aches when I hear, “The number you dialed is not in service.”

    Great take on the prompt. Sitting here struggling to find my voice this week, I decided to check some other posts and the first one I look at knocks it out of the park!
