Silver Streak

Verse 1: Floating in deep blue oceans my dreams struggle to reap I am haunted by gloomy strums echoing in my broken sleep Verse 2: Burning shadows rage in hollows wailing to the darkness of night my heart pierced by blazing agony Oh! My eyes look for a light
Chorus: I hold on to a thread of hope when my spirit seems too weak a soothing breeze in fiery storms uplifts my courage so bleak In roaring thunderstorms I see black clouds fade in silver streak and it gleams my faint waves hope simmers to reach a blessed peak
Verse 3: Nightmares of buried doubts chilling the marrow in bones smoke rises to shape silence falling in water like stones Verse 4: Unfolding vermilion scars of past pulled me down all these years I've learnt to drown with them borders beyond my dry tears
Chorus: I hold on to a thread of hope when my spirit seems too weak a soothing breeze in fiery storms uplifts my courage so bleak In roaring thunderstorms I see black clouds fade in silver streak and it gleams my faint waves hope simmers to reach a blessed peak
Bridge: Hope it is that lights my path Hope it was that led my journey Hope it will be that stays again tearing dark clouds till eternity to unleash a silver lining I believe
Chorus: I hold on to a thread of hope when my spirit seems weak (fading fears melt in gleaming hopes) a soothing breeze in fiery storms uplifts my courage so bleak (black clouds fade in silver streak) In roaring thunderstorms I see black clouds fade in silver streak (hope simmers to reach a blessed peak) and it gleams my faint waves hope simmers to reach a blessed peak (my hope is a gleaming silver streak) my hope is a gleaming silver streak... (Until chorus fades) July 14, 2020 A song of hope Poetry Contest Sponsor: John Hamilton ~Winner: 1st Place

This is indeed a "song of hope" and a "song of joy" and a "song of delight" and a "song of truth" and....I could go on, but I would probably get carried away. This one carried me away.

Oh, Aditi, I think you already know how much this would mean to me! I'm always going on about hope in poetry and you've written a song that is just dripping with the glorious nectar of hope. "Hope it is that lights my path / Hope it was that led my journey", these words speak my heart's language. " black clouds fade in silver streak / (hope simmers to reach a blessed peak)" I am so inspired by your words to face the days ahead with a smile and an assurance that all will be well. FAV! ~ John
