When it seems all hope is faded, gone,
We must make up our minds to carry on,
As heart beats ever steady as a drum,
As doting doe spurs on her newborn fawn.
Hope’s a minstrel with a song for some
Whose ears can hear those gentle fingers strum.
No matter how mundane the morning dawn
The mystery of all is it has come.
