I am counting on it that you will
Call me or write to me when you’re away
Because you know that I will miss you every minute
I am your mother and I know you so well
I know that the thought of me wanting by the phone
Will make you pick up your phone and dial home
I ask myself that you still haven’t called?
Are you okay? Are you too busy or have just forgotten?
There is a sound and my heart breaks
I can feel the pain when splinters pierce my skin
The phone is ringing and it is you
Your flight got delayed because of the weather
And you want me to know that you miss me
My heart mends itself and the world rights itself
My baby is doing well and I need not worry anymore
A few years back, with my kids away from home, I was the one sitting by the phone, waiting for them to call. Many parents have gone through this cycle of emotions just because their child called later than expected.
Your prompt for #JusJoJan the 21st and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “count on it.” Use the phrase “count on it” somewhere in your post. Enjoy!
