Just Hold On - Poem by Monica Engeler

There was a time when things were normal
I would go out for dinner with family
And go to places was just likely
Now those things are no longer formal.

I pray each day for something fine
Just smiling is already brighter,
but I cry away a fighter
Because I know tomorrow will be mine.

You are not alone in your lonely fight.
As one, we will face and endure
I will be by you I will ensure
Even if it feels like a final night.

Just hold on tight, and lets be bold
Tomorrow will be another day.
You are not alone today.
Together you and I will grow old.

Although Gastroparesis will not go away
Your strength will make you stronger
Please don’t cry in anger
Let hope guide you the right way.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This is about suffering with Gastroparesis. It is a stomach disorder. Over 5 million suffer from it. There is no cure just lots of medications, treatments and surgery. It is one of the worst stomach disorders you can have.
