Hope





Hope was lost.
Crowded out by all the brambles, trees, fears.
It could not be found beyond all that lay ahead.
Yet then came one with a touch
which seemed to clear all the fog
All obstacles seemed to dissipate into dust.  
A way was cleared, I could see what lay ahead.
It was beautiful, a promise of more than imagined.
Bigger than all fear and doubt.
Making me feel the healing waters of love.
No more inner pain and fear,
no more veil of unseen days.
It was clear, a clear well full of life.
All that was left to do is take the plunge.
To dare to live the life ahead,
to take those steps forward
to risk walking into a new path.
