"Hope"


"How often I look out my window
and I wonder what I think I'll see?
Do I really expect to see you sitting
in the shadow of the evergreen tree?

As when you were a baby
and I fed you treats and stars.
You grew up that spring time
that springtime that was ours.

How often I look out my window
and tears come to my eyes
as I think of times together
beneath the starry skies...

when side by side we laid
near the apple tree.
How often I look out my window
and think of you and me.

One Day will I look out my window
and really see you there?
In the Dawn's first Light?
In the Morning fair?

Will we sit together then
as in times ago?
How often I look out my window
and hope that this is so."
