Hope’s Words

It seemed a day very pleasant
So fine in weather, beautiful in shades
Nothing seemed wrong
Except for the pain in my heart

Longing for a smile,
I cried to my bitter heart’s content
I drowned in my own tears,
With no hard hearts melted

It seemed that it didn’t matter
If I was alive or dead
Circumstances pointed dead
Despair shook me inside out

But the soft, celestial voice,
Yes, hope’s voice told me sweetly
‘Fear not, child, no matter what
You see or hear. I’ll see you through.’

I knew not before
That a thought could change
One forever for good
Yet, hope’s words did and
Thankful for them

They saved my heart from despair
And did save my life from
The very mouth of eternal damnation.
