Standing Tall

by Steffi L. Jauw

I lift my head and see the sky

So blue, so clear, so high

A bird flies by and beats its wings

A merry tune it sings

A breeze now whispers in my ear

Releasing all my fears

My aching heart, my teary eyes

Starts to vanish with a sigh

A patter of feet on the grass

While children's laughter pass

They run, they play, they jump and dance

And even tried to prance

The smile I long begin to creep

Upon my sorrowed lips

I watch the peace around me flow

Whilst my heart starts to glow

It's not the end, life's moving on

I must not again mourn

For past is past, I must stand tall

And rise in every fall
