There is hope in the prayers of the woman
who bows before God everyday –
Hope for her wishes to be fulfilled.

There is hope in the tears of the mother
who bids her child goodbye –
Hope for prosperity and success.

There is hope in the tight hug of the brother
who comforts his little sister –
Hope for things to get better.

There is hope in the jokes of the guy
who visits his mate in the hospital –
Hope for his friend’s good health.

There is hope in the shy smile of the boy 
who sits alone at lunch everyday –
Hope for a new friend.

There is hope in the hesitant blush of the girl
who nurses her broken heart –
Hope for finding true love someday.

There is hope in the shining eyes of the bride 
who enters her new home –
Hope for a future full of warmth.

There is hope in the confessions of the man
who has committed too many mistakes –
Hope for forgiveness someday. 

There is hope in the laughter of the girl
who has never been able to walk –
Hope for a normal life.

There is hope in the calm stance of the man 
who has always been blind –
Hope for the vision of the light of day.

There is hope in the heart of someone
somewhere all the time –
Hope inspiring someone else to not give up. 

{Composed by Me}

Never stop hoping; with hope comes faith, and faith shall guide you in the right direction.
