HOPE

We live in hope each day and strive to mend
the breaking threads of sorrow and despair . . .
With hope we finish to the very end . . .
And weave a finish that is bright and fair.

High lights and shadows, lend a masterpiece
A depth of beauty and a richer tone . . .
Light hues gain strength, intensity increased . . .
when placed by somber hues and not alone.

With hope we ever strive to reach the light
that guides us through the path of love and peace . . .
Though shadows veil the beauty from our sight . . .
Our faith in the divine, shall never cease!

  2. Ab soul tly beautiful.

    Reminds me of a tapestry what does one see ... the golds ... the vibrant colours of the threads and when one stands back we see the beauty of the whole ... we are working towards the beauty of the whole.
    Yet, what do we see on the reverse side ... knots and tanglements.
    hugs for you Margie
    as always a great poem.
    :o)
    R u ready for it ... it may not come ... you may need your bikini and sun glasses this weekend heh?
