Where Hope Finds Me

Where Hope Finds Me

Abandoning dreams, fearing rejection,
I was well-acquainted with crying.
Wallowing in my lack of perfection
made trusting in love not worth trying.

I was chained to pillars of raw despair,
but your candle would not stop burning.
You entered my space with a love so rare,
it released an unrestrained yearning

to end my sadness. By loosening ties,
hope now finds me alive in your eyes.
