By the number of missed calls and voicemails received
Somebody just died, it had to be
Why else would the calls within the hour be so many
Waited till I sat down somewhere to respond
Got to get prepared for which relative is gone

Didn’t even listen to voicemails, just returned one of the calls
Asked what was this emergency, that got me full of nervous energy
A lot of money is needed-urgently
The amount substantial, and I didn’t have on me
So, went to ATM reluctantly

Wish they told me days ago about this money need
But then I thought,
This emergency call is actually a blessing
Although a hole in the budget it will leave
I’ll survive because I won’t have to grieve
I’m just thanking God everyone’s well and alive
Money can be replaced, life cannot
So, I quit complaining and started thanking God for the call I got.
