Life Hope Love
There is a center of life in the palm of my hand
where I held many dreams
with my fingers recounting everything ever want.
And I see beneath skin in the red of the streams
all the reasons to smile
and the things to revile
for my life I will hold in the palm of my hand.
There is a center of hope in the brown of my eyes
where I saw all my dreams
in the blueness reflected from the wide open skies.
And in freedom I found I could spread open wings
with a reason to fly
or to whittle and die
for my hope I will hold in the brown of my eyes.
There is a center of love in the midst of my heart
where I grew all my dreams
in a heartbeat of lovers that one day broke me apart.
And in loss I found life that was lost in the extremes
with a reason to go
and desire to grow
for the love I will hold in the midst of my heart.
