Hope, please find me.
Find this crack in my home;
slip through it and see me;
see the gaping hole inside my heart.
Dear Hope, please I need you.
I need your proof in the night
I need you to show me where to look
I need you to remind me how to pray.
Hope, I’ve not much strength,
Though all I have I will lend you,
I just need you to find me,
I need you to hurry, I need you now.
Life is changed, life is different
All I knew, I no longer see
All I see, I can’t comprehend
All I feel, I don’t understand.
But hope, I know you’re somewhere.
I trust you’re coming; you’re on the way.
I’m still here; I’m tired and I’m waiting.
Please be beside me, my sweet hope.
As I lay my head to sleep tonight, warmly covered, knowing where my family is, knowing where I will be tomorrow, my thoughts wander to the people of Japan and to the fight that lay before them. I give my prayer tonight, as an anthem to those still alone, still waiting and wondering if anyone knows where to look to find them. I raise my hope to the strength of a nation that will become rebuilt and reborn, one board, one nail, one heart at a time.
- here’s to hope and here’s to beautiful people of Japan. Be strong, live strong, live inside your hope, tomorrow is coming.
I still don’t know what my new rhythm is with my blog, but I will do a couple of posts this week.
