Two Hopes for Thee

Two Hopes for Thee

A Poem by Neville

Two Hopes for Thee

 

 

One day I hope you realise


The sky is only dark at night because


You have your blue eyes closed



When your feet eventually touch the ground


I hope you find all those sharp rough-edged shapes


Are really smooth and round

I always kept my eyes closed when I was scared...Maybe I was shutting out those sharp rough-edged shapes or thought I was, when actually I was just shutting out the light.
the eyes are dreary now...but open.
Lots of expression in these words, Neville.

Wise words Neville. You have expressed in few words the simplicity yet difficulty for a loved one escaping some terrible situation or dilemma. These things can be painfully obvious but escape may seem almost impossible.
Take care,
Alan

Has the sound of exasperation to it. I would say someone is not dealing with reality.

I hope you are okay and you are welcome.
Love the title. It is filled with care and kindness, that is before even reading the two short stanzas.

I thought of sleepless nights, the darkness before dawn and eventual unsettled sleep. To wake each morning without feeling any sharps on rising would be quite something.

The colour of the eyes is insignificant, it is the blue of sorrow that I feel is written about here.

What a beautiful poem, that has immense appeal and softness. Great work Neville.

You are very welcome Neville.
This is bound to reach into anyone's heart as your "hopes" symbolize whatever works for each different reader. I'm in favor of "hoping" in this open-ended way, rather than secretly wanting another to conform to some unwanted advice! (((FREE))) Fondly, Margie
