Hope Rising - Poem by Linda Ori

Leave behind the darkness,
Your sad and weary ways,
Make way for new experience -
Come wander through the maze;

Life is short and fleeting,
Cut loose the tethered hold,
Fly upon uplifted wings -
Embrace, let slip the old;

Hope is ever rising,
Beckons us from sleep,
Sunlight smiles through weary lids -
With promises to keep;

Dance with wild abandon,
Savor every kiss,
Heaven's raining blessings..........
Welcome to your bliss!
