H is for Hello

When have we not yearned for love in some manner? Just to hear the voice of someone we love can break the loneliness. My darling husband is almost always with me. I long to hear his voice when apart, but the voice or should I say voices I wish I could hear are those of my mom and dad.

Both are gone now. I haven't any recordings of their voices. If I could just pick up the phone and hear one of them say hello, my tears wouldn't fall. My advice to anyone would be don't let a chance slip away to hear the voice of a loved one. We are so busy texting, communicating through e-mails, instant messaging to take time to actually sit down to make a phone call or use the wonderful technology such as Skype that allows you to see and hear the one you love. Moments slip away too quickly. Reach out and say hello.


Hello Again

Hello again, hello
Just called to say hello
I couldn't sleep at all tonight
And I know it's late
But I couldn't wait

Hello, my friend, hello
Just called to let you know
I think about you ev'ry night
When I'm here alone
And you're there at home, hello

Maybe it's been crazy
And maybe I'm to blame
But I put my heart above my head
We've been through it all
And you loved me just the same
And when you're not there
I just need to hear

Hello, my friend, hello
It's good to need you so
It's good to love you like I do
And to feel this way
When I hear you say, hello

Hello, my friend, hello
Just called to let you know
I think about you ev'ry night
And I know it's late
But I couldn't wait
Hello

Neil Diamond

  1. My mother died in Feb 2011, my father in Aug 2000. actually, I have some old cassettes of my father's voice, and it's reassuring. But not my mom's, oddly.
