An Angel's Call


My entire body shook, when you told me you were gonna call
I could feel the adrenaline rushing through as I held on to my phone
You said bye to me on the internet, and then seconds later...
My blackberry started playing my 'Next Day' ring tone

I felt so nervous when I saw your name appearing on the screen
As I pressed the green button, I managed to get myself to say hi
Hearing your voice over the line, like listening to angels sing
The touching sweetness went in so deep, it nearly made me cry

As we exchanged our honest words, you said something to me
Something which I have not heard from anyone before
Well other than my parents, but it sounded much nicer from you
And for the first time in my life, I didn't feel as hopeless anymore

So thanks to you, and your special way of making me smile
It will no longer be a lie when I tell other people that I'm fine
Cause it feels like the pain that I suffered over the years never existed at all
After spending that 2 minutes and 6 seconds with you on the line

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
