HOPE


The essence of hope
transcends its name
and lingers
for the spirit's spark.
Though sadness
or pain would dominate,
hope rescues
from the vision dark.

Tomorrow,
in the absence of hope
lies captive
to worn memories;
but surrender
to tomorrow's hope
honors the past
and sets it free.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Psalm 33:18 [AMP]
Behold, the Lord's eye is upon
those who fear Him [who revere
and worship Him with awe],
who wait for Him and hope in
His mercy and loving-kindness.
