To say, “Hello”


 

How many words do you need

to hear me say, “Hello?”

How many times do I have to

listen to hear you say, “Hello?”

What do I have to do

to let you know I am weak at times?

Can you hear my tears on

the phone?

Can you feel how my eyes

burn of pain?

“Hello” means as much as

it says

…though my silence could mean

that I’m being mean

A dedication was made to you

in a way that could never be

forgotten

And, in case you forgot

the World heard it

Loud and Clear

To say I need peace and silence

slaps many when all I have ever

known was chaos

Then, he became my best friend

Then, I found my greatest mistake

Do you still need to

hear me say, “Hello?”

I may have to say it with my

head hung low

But just in case I forget

just find chaos

and you will find my voice

And in a brief, steady whisper

you will hear me say, “I’m sorry”

as you bid me farewell

…Though it will be only that

part of my living that is over

 

How many words do you need

to hear me?
