A Lifeline of Hope
Sometimes our lives seem to hang by a thread
frayed and ready to break.
Our troubles are weights, almost too great to bear
they pull us from family and friends.
But a lifeline of hope will support our fears
faith will remove our doubts.
We begin to connect and find the solutions
the thread becomes a highway to life.
Hope entwines with support and love
as problems are slowly embraced.
Insight and courage become our friends
they walk at our side as life moves on.
