The call came in,

it's one of our own

 

the dispatcher called from the

land-line phone.

 

He's asking for you

he called you by name

 

She asked him politely

he repeated the same.

 

Something's not right

please reach out today.

 

I will Peg, I said

I will right away.

 

A half a ring later

I spoke to my friend

 

Sensing his heartbeat

was close to the end.

 

I love you, he told me

and this I do know

 

Don't blame yourself

for now I must go.

 

I should have said something

to keep him alive...

 

It was February 10th at 5:05.
