About Hope



About Hope

Hope is a garden
Of seed sown with tears,
Planted with love
Amidst the present fears.

Hope is a rainbow
Of butterfly wings,
Gently it beckons,
Lightly it sings.

Hope is a present
Of future each day,
A voice from our heart
To show us the way.

Hope is not passive,
It’s real and alive,
Hope is a strength
To guide choices made wise.

Yes, hope is a garden
Grown from love and from tears,
And hope which is nurtured
Survives throughout the years.
