The Call

It was the call
that nobody ever expects
and when you receive it
you wish you never had
The voice on the phone
was so foreign yet familiar
it made me smile from ear to ear
it was someone I love
yet the news came anyway
he is dead the voice said
I broke down and cried
uncontrollably for hours,
it seemed
slumped
on the steps of a high school
I cried
I heard voices trying to help
trying to consoled me to no avail
I kept on crying
even after the call stop
It was the call
that nobody ever expects
and when you receive it
you wish you never had
I had always imagined this time to come
but nothing can prepared you
for it
past experiences do not help
not reading, nor talking
not even awareness
on death
it was a call, but, just not any
call
it was a call announcing death
the passing of a love one
someone very dear
It was the call
that nobody ever expects
and when you receive it
you wish you never had
it was the call
announcing that my father
was dead
