Fear, Hope, & Love Poem

Amidst all the fear circulating around the coronavirus, may we find light in the darkness. May we rest in God’s love. A poem was born from these thoughts and I wanted to share it with you. I hope it gives you hope.

Fear, the cold word that lingers,

In the dark corners of our mind, 

An unwelcome hunter,

Who refuses to resign, 

Fear, the nightmare driving us,

Under the covers, in the night, 

In a blink, it strikes sense, 

Prompting panic to alight,

Fear, the doctor returning,

Pale-faced and with results,

An ocean crashing over our head,

We watch as our life, it engulfs,

Fear–this shadow cloaks our world,

Threatening all things stable,

It twists thought into doubts,

It whispers, “Hope is a fable.”

Hope, the flickering candle

Casting light in our heart,

It dares to dream of what’s ahead,

A future beyond the charts, 

Hope, an anchor for our soul, 

A lighthouse during a storm, 

Its bright rays, a comfort,

To a sailor aching for morn,

Hope, a refugee eyeing the shore,

Entering an unknown land. 

To escape the chains of death,

He clings to freedom by a strand, 

Hope–the light shattering darkness,

The first glimpses of dawn,

Piercing the shadows of the night,

Till fears grow faint, now bygone, 

Love, the thing greater than these,

In it, fear fades and hope is secured,

It carries us in steady arms,

For through darkness, it has endured.
