I Picked Up My Phone Today


I picked up my phone today...
To call you and say Hello.

I picked up my phone today...
To see how you were doing.

I picked up my phone today...
Just to hear your voice.

I picked up my phone today...
To talk about how much snow there is.

I picked up my phone today...
Just to say I love you.

I picked up my phone today...
But you didn’t answer.

I picked up my phone today...
When I realized you won’t ever be there.

When I picked up my phone today...
There was no answer, for you were in heaven.
