We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope. – Martin Luther King Jr
Today, painted with the first blush of angel blue,
Lights the horizon with cheery hope.
A joyous sparkling chorus
Rises from the fading shadows.
As a sweet breeze sweeps away the gloom,
The long dark night is coming to an end.
The promise of a new world
Lifts up the spirits of millions.
Great unknown mountains and
Broad tempest tossed seas
Await our best efforts.
Seize hope with both hands.
Gather up the promise of now.
Fashion the golden aspirations of today
Into bridges across the dark chasms of yesterday.
May the blessings in your life
Be as plentiful as the stars;
And the positive light of hope
Brighten your life forever.
