Its hope that gets you out of bed each morning.
Its the hope the sun will rise,
- and that your body will too,
without too many aches and pains.
Its the hope that there will be
a good cup of coffee,
and maybe a nice fresh cinnamon roll,
or at least a good bowl of cereal.
Its the hope that the air will be fresh,
that you wont be too hot or too cold,
too wet or too dry.
Its the hope that maybe today
something good will happen,
A good peanut butter
and raspberry jam sandwich for lunch, say,
made from the first two slices
from a brand new loaf of bread.
Its the hope that someone might smile at you,
and think that you are wonderful,
and be glad that you are here.
Thats what gets you up each morning,
and thats what I dont seem to have
a whole lot of these days.
...but maybe it is something that I can give.
