I Hope it Matters to You

I hope it matters to you
That I care about you.
I hope it means something
That I take time to keep in touch.
I hope you are glad to know
That I pray for you.

I hope you don't resent my questions.
Please understand that I like to know
What is going on in your life
Because you are important to me,
And I don't mean to seem inquisitive.

So, when you take a moment to say Hi!
Send a short message on the net;
Pick up the phone
And give me the pleasure
Of hearing your voice;
Best of all, come for a little visit
To my home -
It makes me very happy
Because it matters so much to me!
