Hope Is Where The Heart Is

Hope is where the heart is
When there’s nowhere else to turn
After loved ones leave this life behind
With new lessons for us to learn.
Faith is the journey back to them
On a day in God’s own time
Where eternal bliss and happiness
Is a gift of grand design.
Some will falter and give up
For not everyone can see
The answer lies not behind us
But is promised yet to be.
Hope is where the heart is
On this path we all must roam
To where our loved ones wait for us
When God finally leads us Home.
