The truest philosophy, is not to long for anything in particular, but to accept everything as it comes, and find out the reason of it coming. — Marie Corelli
The unexpected knock on the door
awakened me from a late afternoon nap.
I heard your voice call my name but when
I opened the door, there was no one there.
I walked around the corner thinking you were playing
the trickster but could not find you hiding.
I returned to my room where the phone ringed,
and the voice sadly said you had drowned.
“That cannot be,” I screamed in disbelief.
“I just heard her call me from the other side of the door.”
That call of my name was your final good bye.
