Lending some hope.
Sometime’s its difficult to find our hope. In our confined and restricted state of mind, seeing positives can be really difficult. That’s when we can turn to others. To borrow their hope, to tap into their insight and energy.
Its good to talk.
Lend me your hope for a while, I seem to have mislaid mine.
Lost and hopeless feelings accompany me daily;pain and confusion are my companions.
I know not where to turn; looking ahead to future times does not bring forth images of renewed hope. I see troubled times, pain-filled days, and more tragedy.
Lend me your hope for a while, I seem to have mislaid mine. Hold my hand and hug me; listen to all my ramblings, recovery seems so far distant. The road to healing seems like a long and lonely one.
Lend me your hope for a while, I seem to have mislaid mine. Stand by me; offer me your presence, your heart and your love. Acknowledge my pain, it is so real and ever present. I am overwhelmed with sad and conflicting thoughts.
Lend me your hope for a while; a time will come when I will heal, and I will share my renewal, hope, and love with others
