A Timely Call From Ed Matlack
I got a call tonight from Eddie M. tonight, this time him checking on me.
It pleased me very much to hear from my old friend whom I have yet to meet.
His voice was strong, his demeanor now jovial and not sad.
To hear and to feel this in my spirit made me exceedingly glad.
This is a man who has been to hell and back, but now embraces the light.
I am so proud of him and to hear his voice was a true delight.
He has a job now that came just in the nick of time.
He is moving forward; He laughs out loud at my southern accent.
He also jokes about how it is I that I am getting old.
Nonetheless, his call of concern to me did wholly bless.
When we hung up, it was now I who asked him to pray for me.
Thank you sir for a timely call when it is now I who is in need.
God Bless you sir for blessing me, thank you for what tonight you gave to me.
Just a simple call of concern: something that will to my soul cleave.
God Bless you sir, and may He ALWAYS guide your way.
