Some Do Some Don'T - Poem by shimon weinroth

I'm so glad you phoned
I know you wanted
to come
but couldn't

too many things
in the way

it was so nice
to hear your voice
the lilt of your laughter
the note of expectation

happines and joy
though I can't hug you
hold you close
I know you are there

some loneliness
has vanished
with the holiday cheer

even a glossy greeting card
is better
than none at all

Best wishes to one and all
