Assignment #52
Write the phone call you wish you could have.

Jasmine Cortes
Chicago, Illinois USA



Reinaldo: Hello?
Jasmine [me]: Dad?
Reinaldo: Yeah Jazz.
Me: I've been waiting to hear your voice. If not in person...possibly in a dream.
Reinaldo: I miss you mama.
Me: Not a day goes by where I don't think of you.
Reinaldo: I know I cannot physically be there for you, but forever and always I will be in your heart. You will always be my one pride and joy.
Me: I hope you aren't sick anymore. I hope the angels take you under their wings, and make everything better. You and mom are my world. The day you died my heart collapsed. I love you dad. I may have not said it as often as I should have while you were alive, but I did and always will love you.
Reinaldo: I know mama, I know. I will always love you. I wish I could hold you in my arms forever. I'm glad I got to see my baby graduate from high school though. Jasmine, I love you and never forget it. Mom will take care of you. She loves you too. Next time you talk to your mom tell her I said that I love and miss her. Jasmine, this is not the end of your world...its just the beginning, and one day I will get to see you again. Until then always remember I'm still with you. That part of me will never die.
Me: Take care dad. I love you.
