Waiting To Hear.....

We all know how frustrating it can be waiting for that one telephone call that could make all the difference...Staring at the silent phone and wondering if that call will come....and then it rings....

Waiting To Hear.....The Telephone Call...

I sit here, staring at the phone,
the silence seems so very loud...
Wondering if you're still at work,
or out there mixing with the crowd..

I know you didn't say you'd call,
I wondered though, if you were free...
So here am I, the waiting fool..
Wishing to be in your Company...

My telephone sits there mocking me...
Maybe I hadn't crossed your mind..
Perhaps this was not meant to be..
Hopes I had, will fade with time..

Waiting to hear...A hard lesson learned..
Such disappointment, I could sob...
And then it rings! Your voice confirms..
'Congratulations! You've got the job!'

I know the feeling of waiting for one of this type of phone call. I moved from Wales to England after I had such a call. A lovely poetic reminder for many who have been waiting for a call like this...

Too many at the moment in this dreadful economic recession, still wait in vain...but it is such a great feeling when it happens...
