Family and friends encircle
bestow comfort, warmth
add protective layer of strength
My heart swells with gratitude
to nourish and quench in times of need
times when heartache withers
times of miscommunication or drought of silence
Yesterday’s troubles remain
not willing to leave without a fight
but they cower
in the presence of hope
I listened to an Educational speaker some time ago who believed that the most important gift that a teacher could give students was hope!
I agree! I think we have to find ways to offer people hope in today’s world.
I believe you are so right to say that we need to find hope in today’s world. “Reservoir” is such a nice reminder of how we first build a reservoir of hope within ourselves. Only then can we shine that hope outward.
Thank – you 🙂
