Call Me When You Can

 

“Call Me When You Can”

“Call me when you can”
The text jolts me
Into action

“Call me when you can”
Bad news again, it
Can’t be going well

“Call me when you can”
Another appointment
More disappointment

“Call me when you can”
It’s still not real
I can feel him here

“Call me when you can”
Then I remember
That night again

We choose flowers
Prepare Readings

“Call me when you can”
It’s just another update
On his funeral plan

“Call me when you can”
