Hope Restored

 

I wake up today,
Fresh and renewed,
And hope is restored.

 

No more despair,
Today marks the change,
And hope is restored.

 

I miss you all,
And none of you lost will be forgotten,
But hope is restored.

 

There is no next one,
Just life to live,
Because hope is restored.

 

I have released my demons,
They no longer control me,
My hope is restored.

  I lost hope but found

 

I lost hope

but found it

this morning

when my eyes

opened.

.

Once opened,

hope leaped in

via the door ajar

and the gangly

pup bound upon

me and barked

hope.

.

The winter happened

overnight, but warm

coat and boots, gloves

and scarf made

taking the big pup

out for a stroll. Hope

was in his eyes

and feet as he

spotted his tree.

.

The fire roars

the phone rings

and voices of friends

make hope a sound.
