Lingering Hope (poem)

Each day retracing this one memory

This place where her dreams had faded away

Yet lingering hope still whispers today

That face in shadows perhaps it is he


Each day embracing when love had its way

With welcoming arms a safe place to flee

When promises fade to sheer misery

He never would leave he’d never betray


A world full of doubt became her best friend

Live just for today and forget the past


They hurled at her reasons for hope to end

Forget foolish love and all you’ve amassed


She twirled mid this world which tried to pretend

That it was his voice returning at last

It seems to me she needs to move on. Let go of what is gone and make room for someone new.
