Say Hello

October 8, 2011
By , Baker, FL
Alone in emptiness, darkness, and pain,
I reached my hand out but remained.
My screams were lost in the song of day,
And my tears were forgotten in the darkness of night.

I found no joy or reason to live,
And I lost who I was.
I only existed in pain and sorrow,
In loneliness and without love,
Without hope.

I lost my desire, my love, my hope.
I lost my will and would only cope.

But you came along and touched my face;
You opened my eyes and reached out your hand.
You saved my life and gave me love…

You said hello.
