Sometimes Hope Is A Missed Appointment!

Jennifer Regnier@jennifer_regnier

Emerging from the mist of first light
are the song birds in full flight
The sun’s awakening resets all clocks
each ticking with a fresh start
And hope springs eternal
And all our nightmares have faded
into the mist of the dawn
And with each ray of the sun
the mist, burned away, now gone
Realizing we have drifted much beyond
where we first begun

Drifting from wishful thinking
to our many ships now sinking
We are left adrift in the wilderness
of expectations turned to desperation
Too far from land to hear us calling
Too far gone for us safely returning
Captain sounds our emergency horns
But we know what is to come
Sometimes hope is a missed appointment
to save ourselves from the pain
of disappointment

Soon the song birds will return
Here below in their shadows will show
us the way to go
Home will not be long now
All the many familiar faces
Having not too long arrived
from all the many familiar places
Heaven they say must be like this
Now emerging in the light
above the heavenly mist
Heaven they say must be like this

Today I will say a prayer for those
I would have missed
Tomorrow they will say a prayer
for the ones they never kissed
And the sadness we feel
will soon enough reveal
the madness of all the forgiveness
we’ve long repealed
My heart is at peace, my soul at rest
knowing I’ve truly done my best
Heaven they say must be like this
