Stand Up And Say Hello - Poem by Monica Engeler

I stand up and search for answers of you
It is so unclear where you have gone
I want to see if those wings are really true
You see, your spirit still lives forever on.

Sometimes I get sad when I am alone
I want to hear you say hello again.
Why? I am not ready to be on my own
My eyes close tight in such pain.

I dream hard to see you smile at me,
but there is nothing but darkness.
I look even further to find only agony
Your grin was full of kindness.

I want to be brave and stand tall,
and call out my name for you.
I will wait until I hear your call
Please then say hello too.

Everywhere I look I see only lost wings
Maybe you're at a better place
You always knew my favorite things
Now your touch is a blank trace.

I raise my arms like wings and say hello
There is no time to say goodbye
The golden gates of heaven may follow
I will stay standing with no sigh.
