Beyond Hope  by Janice Tindle 

In the dark, behind the presence of emotion,

Absolute stillness and unrelenting silence,

I am rhythmically breathing.

I am not lost.

Even though the darkness envelopes me,

I am here.

Believe me, your shame is not mine.

I am steadfast.

I won’t let you fall into the night.

All that I am, all that I will be,

Is right beside you.

In the morning, you will open your eyes and see tomorrow is today,

And hope has risen with the sun,

I stand beside you, your hand in mine,

No hidden fears, no painful secrets.

These words are true, words of hope,

Words of love and revealed truth,

In the midst of chaos, I am your peace,

In the midst of confusion, I am your clarity,

I am your child.

I am your hope, beyond your trial,

I will be there, past, present and future,

I will be there, loving you, even when there is no hope,

I will be there.

Into the cold, dark night of

Fragmented fantasies and misplaced dreams,

You have my immovable presence and undying loyalty,

In this world and on into the next,

My eyes are fixed, are fixed on yours.

My heart beats unified with yours,

I’ll stay with you, beyond hope.
