On and off all day I've tried.
I can’t get any answer.
Was I calling a wrong number?
Is he out?
I’ll try once more-
Check in the big book-
A busy signal!
Could God have left his receiver off the hook?
(Someone’s at the door. They’ll have to wait.)
“Operator- is this number in service? Yes?”
Spin it again. And still no answer.
I’m positive my line’s not out of order.
(Will that knocking never stop?)
His phone rings on.
Easy for him to say “Need help? Call on me any time!”
What if I can’t get through?
What if he’s gone?
Or could that knocking be him calling on me?
