Try Picking up the Phone
by Seamus Hora
Have you ever found you could not sleep?
For one week or even more-
Prayed for a moment’s peace of mind
As you patrolled the corridor.
When the feeling in your stomach
Tries to drive you around the bend,
You need someone to talk to.
Either- Doctor or a friend.
You make the right decision
By picking up the phone
The start of your recovery –
You’re no longer on your own.
As the pressure slowly eases
Peaceful moments grow much longer.
Like the friends that rallied around you.
More caring – YES much stronger.
