To an Absent Wife
I went to my heart and enquired to know how to make you mine again,
But my heart was broken and I asked in vain.
I then spoke to my brain to learn how to rekindle our flame,
But my brain was busy dousing out my pain.
And I talked to friends and my mother too.
And I surfed the Net and read books a few.
For I saw your face in every cranny and nook.
And recalled your smile and the way you look.
So I typed my love on my mobile's face
And I send you this with my warm embrace.
Note: A “mobile” in the UK is a “cellphone” in the USA.
