A shuddered sigh, then some hope inhaled. A wince of distrust, yet a heart unveiled. A cautious smile leaves a little too late. And a hopeful look rises to the bait. A tensed up brow begins to relax, For peace and joy have been too long taxed. Sorrow still lurks in the back of the mind, But reluctantly it is left behind. A cautious faith is restored anew And I open myself back up to you.
