Hope and New Meaning

by Patt Richards
(St Julians, Malta)

Despair became a destructive friend of mine
You gave me strength to stand alone again
To try to seek a new happier future once more
I was secluded, remote, you cleared my mind
You spurred me on and restored inner dignity
You gave me back new hope and calm integrity

When I needed words of support, there you were,
When my hope was gone and my heart lay bare
There with supportive words to carry me through
A kindred spirit, warm with compassion and care
I found a better place; you gave that back to me
That’s how I know how it is to be loved by you

Through the tears you came and gave me sanctuary
Your caring love moves me to hope and inner peace
A key to our emotion loves pure and true embrace
I had lost my belief and had felt my spirit break
You have restored my trust, my hope, my faith
Your love is a constant a love that won’t forsake

All my life I will be with you forever, my isolated star
Without you my life would be an emptier lonelier place
When I was lost and alone you gave me a stronger will
We can take tomorrow, not a future we could ever know,
Looking back from the past and embrace what we have
Sweetest soulful friendship and bitterness reality’s pill

You will feel my love and lifelong gratitude
It’s so hard to let those feelings die, of how much I need you
Sweet memories that will live deep inside and can’t fade
Sad bitter sweet fellowship binding and always true
To leave the world behind that lives right here in dreams
You gave my life back to me and for that
I will always, always, love you.
