Daylight Brings Promise and Hope
. . .and so it went. . .after they shrugged off the whispers of night. . .the cereal had been downed. . .the directions given. . . the door flung open. . .and it started all over again. . .this day that brought promise. . .this day that brought hope. . .because when you're two. . .life has not beat you down. . .and when you are five. . .all things are possible. . .and when you're ten. . .you want to hang on. . .because even by then. . .you see what's around the corner. . .and at some point. . .even as you look forward. . .there are times you want to count backward. . .to when all was promise. . .and all was hope. . .and it's all there was. . .
