The Promise

If you are reverant I promise tomorrow will come in sunlight.
If you are patient I promise a better new day.
If you are hopeful I promise many new days.
If you are thoughtful I promise a sweet surprise.
If you are simple in expectations the surprise will be rich.
If you are observant you will see hope in others' eyes.
If you are thankful you will see love in others' hearts.
If you look behind you, you will see the support of many arms.
If you gather all your strength, you will be your tomorrow.

This is really good. Is the verse yours, by any chance? Plus, the image fits it exactly.

Tabor said...

Thanks, Dave. Some compliment coming from someone who actually is a poet. Yes, both the verse and photo are mine. I blushingly take credit.

Beautiful. If I read this every day for a month, I'll be in a much better place.

Barry said...

Beautiful picture but, surprisingly, even more beautiful words.

I loved coming here today.

Your poem is wonderful! So, when will be able to purchase the beautiful photography book with the brilliant stories and poems? I'm saving up the money in my piggy bank, Tabor. It is always soul strengthening to visit your blog. Glad I came by today.
