Last thing at night

check the phone is switched on

sleep and not sleep

then finally after 8am

you wait and listen

wait and listen


Phone on, of course it is

now its a game

all day a waiting game

will it or won’t it

will it ring

I hope Not

but I hope Yes


Each day goes by and no call

tempting fate right now

am I superstitious

you bet I am

Irish blood what else


The waiting game

each day goes by

and every day at 7pm

I let out

a sigh of relief


Tonight it starts all over again

“is the phone switched on”

and the Waiting Game begins
