Your voice; your words; seem to linger

Long after… I’ve hung up the phone

I’m smiling; remembering the laughter

Long after the conversation has gone


It’s funny knowing your voice as I answer

Knowing “you”; yet not “knowing” the man

Wondering as we speak of one day meeting

If you’re intrigued; excited…as I am


Time… has seemed to deepen the friendship

That could’ve easily; slowly… fizzled out

Without touch… without physical contact

Time wasted?...... a legitimate doubt


But your voice alone; has created memories

Of sharing dreams and ideals with a friend

Finding a spirit…so close to my own

Sharing a bond; not allowing it to end


I treasure the moments you share with me

There is a place in my life; you belong

You are more than a “voice”; you are part of me

My “love” for you will always stay strong


I believe… that each of us is significant

In the lives of those…that we “meet”

We fulfill a need; we are nourishment

Sometimes the “food”; sometimes only the seed


Your spirit…though far away…touches me

Your words…your laughter…I hold dear

You capture my heart when you speak to me

Far away…yet always…so near
