Memories of Hope
A belief in the future, visions of life
a promise of dreams, love, and family
preserved in the bonds of husband and wife
within the strong walls of stability
A dream of giggles and walks in the woods
Singing over thunder, warm and secure
Hot cocoa shared over freshly baked goods
Taking life’s journey unafraid and sure
No terrors will lurk in bedrooms or halls.
Swiftly will tears convert into laughter,
Darkness cannot overthrow sunlit walls.
Nightmares defeated now and hereafter
With daydreams of memories yet to fade
The presence of shadows Hope’s forbade
