Don't Give Up

© Jeff Bresee
We wait for what we long for
We long for what we need
Impatience and Anxiety
Give root to errant deed
Which grows to yield but heartache
The fruit that poisons trust
And so to shadow we recede
And hope descends to dust
But somehow from the ashes
The will to try again
Doth mend the heart
And forge the path
In search of that one friend
Who never will betray us
Who never will go astray
But fear still lurks upon the thought
While waiting for that day
We’ll simply stumble once again
For we know not who to trust
Thus thoughts becomes an enemy
But conquer them we must
For surely there is someone
Whether ‘Shining Knight’ or ‘Bride’
Then all shall have been worth it
Our “Last Hope” justified
