I Called Her


I called her my wife
I should have called her my friend

I called her angry
I should have called her disappointed

I called her weak
I should have felt her strength

I called her depressed
I should have called her lonely

I called her lonely
I should have seen I left her alone

I called her a child
I should have seen the woman

I called her selfish
I should have seen the selflessness

I called her regretful
I should have called it doubtful

I called her infrequently
I should have called her more often

I called her at the worst times
I should have embraced the better times

I called when I thought I was feeling strong
I should have called and told her I was weak

I called her with the passion of my arrogance
I should have called with the admission of my ignorance

I called her in anger
I should have called her honestly

I'm calling her again
I hope it's not too late
