Voicemail Exchange

I was on the brink of ending the call.
I said my two cents in no time at all.
I was a few words short of admitting my sins
over a dial tone.
Three words that would change everything
or leave me with nothing.
To say it, how? I was unsure.
To say it now? I think so.
Wait, I’m unsure again.
My sin is my refusal to avoid
the temptation to love her
when her parents hate me.
Hannah’s response massaged the romance in my muscles.
Twenty years later, and you still got it, babe.
I returned a blushing emoji.
I loved you then, and I sure as hell do today.
