Hope

By Ihilani H.

 

Laughter, A smile, A baby's cry, A rainbow, The first drop of rain, An "I love you," A "thank you," A blooming flower, The strum of a guitar, Applause, A high-five, A cartwheel, The smell of a new book, A hug, A kiss, Meeting a new person, Spending time with old friends, The warmth of your family, Knowing that there are others out there just like you, And the promise of tomorrow, With the sunrise of each new day.
