Hope Awaits


A friend Julie Asher Lee posted this awesome pic on here yesterday and I stared it all day trying to imagine her story….I love looking at an artists work and trying to write some words to go with it….Hope you like the poem. PT

Hope Awaits

She awaits the one who loves her
To return from points unknown
Separated by vast oceans
Off defending life and home

Her love keeps the fires burning
Sending prayers into night air
Kind of love that lasts forever
Til back home this life to share

Looking deeply to the distance
Where she hopes he’s looking too
As the time here in between them
Passes slowly til it’s through

Every night out in that meadow
Just beyond their old farm gates
She keeps vigil for a sweetheart
To return as Hope awaits
