Poem: Feeling Hope

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"I Can't Fight This Feeling Anymore" by REO Speedwagon

poem-feeling-hope

She is falling so deep
into a place unknown
that is dark and dismal,
until he finds her.

She is lost
with a no hope of return
before his eyes meet hers,
showing her a way out
of the cavern she is buried within.

With him, she sees a spark of light
giving her hope
to greet tomorrow,
giving her hope
to take a chance
on her dreams once more.

She is willing to reach out
grasping the light
her heart deeply yearns for,
willing to let go of the past
taking a chance
on a future full of happiness.

She can feel her heart grow warmer,
she can see her smile get brighter
as she looks into his eyes
listening to his every word,
believing in a second chance.

Clive,

Taking a chance on love again is quite a risk.

Hopefully the kiss from a true love will help.

Thank you for reading.

To love again is a risk

But she will be happy with a true loves kiss.

Kari,

In life no one knows if he will face more hurt. I suppose he only must keep trying for what his heart truly wants.

Thanks for reading and thinking it is lovely.
