Meleza Jali ~ Will You Wait

Every day I sit and wonder
Are you there?
Can you hear me?
I think about the unspoken words
Feelings not expressed

I ask for courage
To accept the things I can’t change
I ask for wisdom
To change the things I can

Every day I sit and wonder
Are you happy?
Are you proud?

Even though it is one day
Further since the last time I saw you
It is one day closer
To the next time I will

But now I know
You are there, you can hear me
You are happy, you are proud
Wait for me, as I wait for you
Now and forever
