The telephone rings

Alone
In the house
All is quiet
All is peaceful
The telephone rings
‘Hello’ I say
You answer me
Tell me you’ve
Had an accident
That you rolled the car
Misjudged a bend
In the thickness of fog
I ask if you are okay
You tell me yes
Just shook up a little
The seatbelt held you firm
Or it may have been
Another story
The roof and windscreen
Battered smashed in
The car a write off
I don’t care
I need to see you
Check you are okay
Emergency services
Come take detail
Upturn the car
Back onto its wheels
Insurance will sort that
I call you again
Worried
Not knowing where you are
If anyone has got to you
You answer
The police are with you
They will drop you home
Still I am anxious
I wait
Time is endless
I just want to hold you
Know you’re not concussed
That you are fine
Because I know
You would not want
To worry me
You get home
I embrace you
Look at you
Your eyes are
Clearly showing shock
We get a drink
We sit we chat
We are thankful
The telephone call
Could have been
So very different
Had you not had
Your seat belt on
Or been going faster
Or involved another vehicle
I’m so very grateful
You were spared
To return back home to me
