HOPE… ‘a tiny flicker’

HOPE… ‘a tiny flicker’

Hope is in the last flicker
Of the dying candle 

As it starts burning again
With more life and brightness 

Hopeful is the sunbeam
As through tiny crack in the door it passes 

Its light will dispel darkness
As soon as it touches the floor 

Hopeful is the ocean
Its waves will rise after every fall 

Racing to the shore and winning
Their forward motion they’ll never halt
Hopeful is the tiny bird
As it gathers twigs for its nest

The branches will support her home
And let the hatchlings be 

Hopeful are the summer clouds 
 As they search for nimbus in the skies 
Rain will bring relief and joy
To the eyes of the farmer weary

Hopeful are lofty mountains
With their towering heads  

Climbers will reach their summit
And crown them in the sky

Hopeful in the sky is the
Disappearing waning moon 

After the no moon it will
Soon again be full 

Hopeful is the weary sun
As it sets every evening 

The sunrise that follows
Will bring new opportunities  

Hopeful are the breaths
Of terminally ill patients

Will they see a few more dawns?
May the Almighty change His Will 

Hopeful is mankind 
That in peace we all live

Pray all wars cease
We show kindness and humanity
