I see hope in raindrops
and budding trees
in yellow daffodils
and puffy white clouds

I hold hope’s hand
as I walk to the park
with my grandson

I hear hope in laughter
as my fingers trace
the soft cheek
of my new granddaughter

I taste hope in a meal
prepared with love
and shared with family

I feel hope in the jab
of a vaccination
and in the eyes
of masked strangers

I see hope everywhere
so let’s you and me
each grab a piece

there’s hope enough to share

This poem is my last piece with P.S. I Love You. I simply can’t find words to express my thanks to Kay Bolden, Dan Brown, Tre L. Loadholt and Scott Muska. PSILY has been my “go to” publication for the past two years and I’ll miss it dearly. ❤Thank you❤
