Upon the threadbare fringes of a dream

Upon the threadbare fringes of a dream

The touch of Hope’s hand sweeps

The cobwebs free and the pattering dance

Of dawn’s gracing light mends the paths

Across the sea till afar where time

Is slow in passing and your courage is brimmed

And your heart is full with family, friends, love

And a home where you belong.

A wishing wind with hope in its hands

There is a wishing wind with hope in its hands

Faring forth across this sunwarmed land

And the first days of lavish haste blows

Joy to life in the past’s crisscrossing wake.

Let us leave the ways of evergreen moors

Like questing birds through memories curling

Like white shadows in blue tide.

Who knows what the great beyond has in store,

Whose salty lips the praying future has kissed,

But we are in pilgrim mood sailing on outbound ships,

Our dreams already there rejoicing in spirit

On love’s beckoning shores.

Little Hope

VLUU L100, M100  / Samsung L100, M100

Hold my hand, little hope
Don’t let me go astray
I cannot sail without your wind
Lift my sails, I pray

Lead my ship to better shores
Where I can find some rest
I cannot sleep without your dreams
So build for them a nest
And Place it in my weary heart
To give my soul some rest

Sing for me, little hope
Don’t fly away so soon
Brush your wings against my heart
And my heart will sing in tune

Hold my hand, little hope
Don’t let me go astray
I cannot fly without your wings
Carry me, I pray
