Oh you can’t replay a phone call
Like you can re read an old love letter.
I know hearing the loved one’s voice
At times can seem so much better,
But the receiver down
And you are all alone.
Did you detect maybe
An impatient tone?
Is there a problem?
Was she lying?
Is she moving on?
Is her love dying?
Did you really tell her?
Were those beeps on her line
From an incoming call
Signalling an end to mine.
Love by telephone is too immediate
Too abrupt at times for one to say
Just exactly how one feels
In a proper and loving way
But put a pen to paper
Write a considered love letter
Spend the effort and the time
For a result that is surely so much better
And if you try,
And if you do,
You are giving her
A part of you.
