THE PROMPT THIS WEEK IS: "The number you have reached is no longer in service"
As I picked up the phone to call home
My heart was pounding
Racing with the last words spoken
Had I only said what was on my heart
Not what was out of angry pain and rage
Then I wouldn't be lost to my family
It had been ten years since we last spoke
As I raced out of the house
As the door slammed behind me
I swore I would never look back or call
But life has changed
I need to talk with them
I need them to know about the baby
She has so little time
The automated recording rang across the the line
"The number you have reached is no longer in service"
Have you ever said something or left with unfinished business that you wish you could take back and change?
