Thank "You"

chillin
TV Watchin
then I answer the phone
and out of the blue
it's "You"
only...
my heart doesn't sing
In your voice
there's a familiar ring
But I can't place the voice
So there is no choice
but to ask...
Who again are you?

you pause
as if to think up
your disclaimer clause
We're both surprised
cause this reprise
is playing with no lies
of omission
no feelings of attrition
just congratulatory words,
I'm proud of you!

thought
I'd mentioned
before our previous
dissension
my book was released
in 2006
but maybe in the midst
of life's hits and kicks
the words didn't stay
and gradually slipped away
never to be recalled
by you

notwithstanding
the perception
of previous rejection
who would have thought
after nerves so fraught
I'd see this place and time
my, it's almost sublime
because I've realized
the power and healing
that is mine
simply because of a call
from you
