Ray of Hope

You were
The ray of hope
What made you
Lose it all?

Just a word of
Could've helped
You live it out.

Many in life
One must live and
Face'em with courage.

Life's a river
Flowing against odds
No one should stop it
Let it keep flowing.

    Yea, we too may be held responsible for someone's tragic end! If a timely word of solace or encouragement, a positive nod or an extended hand could have averted the tragedy, why should we hesitate to do it! A sweet poem with a lofty message! ! (Report) Reply
