74 (who?)
Five Years.
She waited by the phone.
Waited for a call that never came.
Sometimes courageous enough to dial the number.
But not strong enough to let it ring.

Five Years.
She spent wondering why
Wondering how it all happened so fast.
How in the span of a day,
Family turn into strangers.

Five Years.
She's been trying to forget about.
Forget his very existence.
Impossible a task it's proven to be
No matter her persistence.

Five Years.
He was gone. No sign of life.
Yet now he speaks of love and tears.
Please do tell me, Why now after
Five Years?

Wow! You never cease to amaze me with your writing talent. So excellently written! It leaves me with so many questions.

I may have to take poetry-writing lessons from you. :D Compared to what I've written and published here, its like comparing oranges to pomegranates.

;P thanks but I don't believe in lessons.
I write from within and your style is you.
Mine aren't even really poems, more just thoughts put together.
Yours are story teller with a deeper meaning... I found.
