Hope

Written by: Emily Schaffer

A blanket of white layers the sky,
Surrounded by concrete towers so high.

Straining to hear the wind, the birds,
My only comfort, the hope of your words.

I know there's a reason for the pain,
I know there's a reason I'm going insane.

Why we moved so far away,
I ask myself every single day.

I don't understand why we had to leave,
That we'll go home I have to believe.

I need to believe I'll see you again,
That one day you'll take away all my pain.
