Hope Was There

When the desperation hit
When people wept in the streets
When everyone felt abandoned
Hope stayed, even though fleeing was easier

When eyes filled with tears
When kids and families were torn apart
By that last frantic grasp
Hope tried

When all else gave up
When all else backed off
When people lost all they had
Hope flew

When they cried
When the world was shaken with agony and despair
When nothing seemed good
Hope worked

When those four planes crashed
When the buildings fell
When the lives were lost
Hope was there

Hope was only a tiny glimmer
Hope was still there
She ran to those who needed her
She worked to help

When all else failed
Hope didn't
She flew through us all
Letting us know we still had her
We just had to look hard enough

Hope remembers
Hope was there
