The Right Things, At The Right Time - Poem by Jessica Fellows

It’s been a down day
She’s been waiting for someone to say
No need to cry
Just stand up and fight
Negative luck on that
No happiness has come back
She listened to the sound of ring
Which made her heart sting
Picked up the phone
Quietly said, “Hello? ”
“Hey, beautiful, ” he replied.
“Thought I’d call and say good night.”
Then the tears flow
Just had to let them go
Sniffle here, sniffle there
Crying so clear and bare
He was blank on what to say
The best thing that happened all day
“No need to cry, ” he say.
“Just stand up and fight.” Like she wanted him to say
“Try to relax.”
“Take a deep breath and sit back.”
Hearing those words, so easy
Settles the soul, so cleanly
“Please smile.”
“I’ve wanted to see it for a while.”
She let out a giggle
Not another sound, not even a wiggle
Slowly smiling, wiping away the tears
As if it were him for all those years
“I love you.” Was all she said.
“I love you.” He said to her before bed
He blew a kiss in the soft silence
She missed so much of his kindness
Nothing left, but her and the dark
Closing her eyes, ‘til the morning lark.
