Hope

 

hope-in-focus

Every night I look up
into the dark sky
Wondering when light will break
and shine down on our paths;
Bringing us together

Every night I look up
into the dark sky
Wondering if you are looking up too
and if our eyes have fallen
on the same bright star
That will soon shine down our paths;
Bringing us together

Tonight I looked up again
My heart leapt at the vast array of stars
I remembered Abraham as he looked up
and had faith enough to believe in the promise of a son
Becoming the father of many nations.

It seems great faith too is required of me now;
For as the years go by,
As the stars grow dimmer,
As the nights grow colder,
Will I have strength to hope against all hope?
Believing that the light will soon pierce
the darkness that surrounds
Bringing us together forever.
