New Hope – A Poem

New Hope

Star of David, there you stood
Behind your cross made of wood.
When you looked down into my eyes
The love I saw was a huge surprise.
Just when I was feeling low,
I had no hope, no place to go,
You stepped in and took my hand;
You showed me heaven, a wonderland.
Now, like Alice, I feel delight,
No longer afraid in the dead of night.
Living for today, not fearing tomorrow
New Hope is mine, far flung my sorrow.
