Hope is


Hope is the torch
which keeps darkness at bay
a solitary beacon
to show us the way

Hope is the magic
that greets the new day
and should be the last thing
that we give away

Hope is the dream
that will come tomorrow
not a simmering mask
underneath your sorrow
.
Hope is the sparkle
when tears fill your eyes
strengthens hello's
and softens goodbye's.

So add hope to all
that you have planned
cos sometimes
roses do grow on sand.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
