In the palm of my hand
That would sway me
Each time that I touched
The lines on your face
As I watched you

And the phone line
Now patiently waits
With me day after day
For the sound

Aww tink's so very sad! Someone needs to start a fire under his butt! Must be blind, poke him in the eye, that will get his attention then kiss it and make it all better. :) seriously, wishing you lots of luck and love. You deserve both my friend!
