I listen in the silence for meaning
direction to life’s questions, mysteries
I am blessed with images of creation
mine and others where good triumphs
because that is all there is now and ever
I cherish the day light yet walk in the night
my eyes see both forward and back
and I wonder if every answer brings hope
to dial up a bright future, success, love
and where do these things come from?
how do we get there from where we are?
breath by breath, inch by inch, step by step
we make progress and gain strength, promise
for the days ahead
