Hope

Good morning, friends!
I came across a poem that made me cry a tear of joy.
A former pastor introduced it to me.

"I Don't Regret a Mile"
by Howard Goodman

I've dreamed many a dream that's never come true,
I've seen them vanish at dawn,
But enough of my dreams have come true
To make me keep dreaming on

I've prayed many a prayer that seemed no answer would come,
Though I'd waited so patient and long;
But enough answers have come to my prayers
To make me keep praying on 

I've sown many a seed that's fallen by the wayside,
For the birds to feed upon
But I've held enough golden sheaves in my hands
To make me keep sowing on

I've trusted many a friend that's failed me
And left me to weep alone
But enough of my friends have been true-blue
To make me keep trusting on

I've drained the cup of disappointment and pain,
And gone many a day without song
But I've sipped enough nectar from the roses of life
To make me want to live on


Blessings,
R
