There is hope in your eyes
like the world just might
be that better place someday.
There is love in your voice
like people on the whole
aren’t as bad as they pretend to be.
There is strength in your touch
like you would hold the world gently
and keep it safe from harm.
There is trust in your heart
like you’ll wear it on your sleeve
in defiance of so many who would mock you for it.
There is hope
and trust in who you are
and who you will be
and I’m thankful I get to share in it.
