15 Minutes

His ringtone interrupts the song that’s playing;
His stomach drops and his hands start shaking.
It’s been months since they spoke last;
He didn’t think she would call him back.
He answers the phone;
She says hello and they begin to talk,
Hearing her voice was so much harder than he thought.
15 minutes pass and the conversation’s over;
So much has changed, he feels like doesn’t know her.
He holds back tears as they say goodbye;
Knowing this would be the final time.
