Hope (to Bean)

I find

Great comfort

In these

Early morning

Hours of

Silence simply

Recalling yesterday

And yesterday’s

Yesterday those

Joyful times

When the

Burdens of

Today hadn’t

Been recognized

As anything

More than

Hope of

Something better

But little

Did I

Know then

That those

Sweet sweet

Hours of

Happiness would

Be the

Very things

That continue

To give

Me the

Hope today
