Closing my eyes in the dark
I listen to your voice, and fantasize,
pretending my head rests on your shoulder.
That I hold you, rather than this pillow.
We talk, we laugh, you whisper your love--
I cling to this phone, my link to you.
I cling knowing that soon, we'll hang up.
We should hang up---we must hang up!
Leaving me to lie here alone, missing you.
Do you lie in your dark and picture my face?
Are your arms as achingly empty as mine?
Are you tempted to dial my number once more?
We just said "goodnight", and I lie here
wondering if this night will ever pass,
bringing morning, and your voice once again.
