• Hope

    by Erika McLitus

    Tossing pebbles into the river
    Watching them sink below
    Barely able to contain the shiver
    That rattles and shakes my soul

    Dropping pebbles into the wishing well
    Like stars peering through the gloom
    Feeling my heart expand and swell
    The sensation leaving far too soon

    Grasping, holding onto a tenuous thread
    Fraying by the minute
    Embracing the words my loved ones said
    Once upon a forever ago
