Caller ID

For  GBE2's prompt - Caller ID

You tried to reach me several times
Through nature, dreams, and songs
I did not hear the ringing tones
Oblivious I rode along

And then one day you showed yourself
In an unexpected way
How could I have missed you all these years
Seems like my life I threw away

The strange disjointed moments
Somehow fell into place
Like jigsaw puzzle pieces
And delicate crocheted lace

How could I have forgotten
The adventures that we carved
Your ID etched into my soul
The caller of my heart.
