I read HOPE in story books
of princess sleep 100 years.
I see HOPE in dreams and hallucinations in the desert,
a dangerous thing.
For HOPE deferred makes the heart sick.
HOPE is a partner in the union of love,
faith and hope stand in solidarity.
HOPE, the spokes of the wheel of time.
For when hope dies so will I.
The God who IS love, is of HOPE.
HOPE is exercised in power,
And bores fatal holes in despair.
Faith leads the triumphal march,
From loved one to lover of the soul.
