Hope and Despair

Hope and Despair

are you aware
that you widen the distance
between hope and despair

your smile can bridge
an open mile
and link a person’s heart
to something they can
hope in
to make a brand new start

your love can open doors
that money never could
grace and peace they follow you
because you’ve understood

and do you even realise
the difference that you make
when hope is lost
your heart is grave
and responsive to their loss

and by your very actions
of soothing loving words
of gentle hugs and caring thoughts
the problems are reversed

so don’t forget to smile today
at strangers and your friends
you never know the heartache
they might suffer from within

and by your gentle knowing
and loving empathy
you light the way, the path
and offer hope to them today
