I try to bring the sunshine where I can
though days seem dark, the future dim, obscure:
a breath of hope born where my life began.
There are no certainties, for child, or man:
nothing to which we may cling, constant, sure
I try to bring the sunshine where I can.
Though some seem to seek for the entire span
of their lives, to destroy what is most pure:
that breath of hope born when our lives began
I still believe there is another plan
which waits within the wings, and will endure,
so try to bring the sunshine where I can
For life’s a dream: we cannot understand
its fullness, and in letting go, procure
that breath of hope born where our lives began.
There is no sheltered space to which I run:
I stand firm as the waves crash to the shore
and try to bring the sunshine where I can
that breath of hope borne through my whole life’s span.

Trying to bring a little hope
It’s difficult at the moment, isn’t it? The situation in Ukraine, and climate breakdown, not to mention any struggles we may face as individuals. I’m battling PMDD this week, and I’ve also had kids off sick, so it’s been hard to keep up with comments and reading: please excuse me, I will try my best to catch up! I’m offering this breath of hope to anyone who might need it. It isn’t much, but it’s all I’ve got right now.
