I can see the end in sight
soon there will be light
instead of darkness all around
a ray of hope will be found
think we could be friends
may help as hearts mend
please consider my request
as you decide what's best

Let's put an end to this conflict
no need for either of us to restrict
what will happen tomorrow
that would only bring more sorrow
i think there's been enough
makes it awful rough
to sort out how I really feel
distinguish what is real

Just need some time to think
you've pushed me to the brink
standing on the edge
of the world's highest ledge
have to be careful or I will fall
no one here to call
will you throw me a rope
offering up a ray of hope



 Friends are friend forever if the Lord's the Lord of them and a friend will not say never cause the welcome will not end.

Ah, an indrawn breath! - I have been there.  Only an excellent poet could take me back on that train to that station.  Congratulations.

Sven,

Hope is all I have most days.  I really do hope I get that ray....too much shared for it to be denied I think.  It is not up to me.  All I can to is offer....he has to accept.  Thank you...

Great way of looking at a tough situation. Sometimes we all need a reminder that there's hope.

Life holds back its mysteries,
Man keeps back his emotions hidden,
Offer a rope of hope to one,
Soon he will be a friendly one...

A great poem Lone Wolf, you should not be lone wolf anymore, I wish to part of a pack of wolves now on....

Regards, sudhir

 Take each day as it comes,
Consider each day as a flight,
Try hard to succeed and fly,
Surely then you will reach some height.

But if by some chance you don’t,
Remember that tomorrow will always come.
Learn this well and learn this hard
That today’s efforts will pay for tomorrow’s fun.

   A Ray of Hope is always there
    trusting yourself is the key
   another waits to take your hand
    and carve a true love destiny

nice writing Lone Wolf
