Great Expectations


At times it is hard to see the light
through these shadows of doubt,
but there is hope in my soul.

With great expectations I reach past
the shadows that surround me.
I transcend the darkness and my spirit
becomes woven in the sunlight.

With tenderness I listen to the sweet
sounds of amazing grace,
and with the vision of a child,
I remind myself that
this is the day, the hour, the moment
to keep the faith.
