Before you hang up
Don’t say
“It was nice speaking to you”
Tell them that;
“It was great to hear your voice”

Tell them that;
There are lines etched on the inside of
your heart, that mark the days since you last saw them

Not; “It’s been too long”

Tell them that you refuse to wait
Not that you “Cannot wait”
To see them again

Tell them that you miss their smile, their face, their smell, their hair in the bathroom drain, their dishes in the sink and the way that they begin to irritate you after you have spent too much time together

Don’t just say;
“I miss you”

Instead of;
“Take care of yourself”

Tell them that your world would crumble like a sandcastle in a hurricane if anything was to happen to them

Tell them;
“I love you”

There’s no sweeter way to say that,
And no need to be over dramatic.
