Hope is Outside My Door

Hope is outside my door

I can feel it
It is trying to come in
It glitters like gold
It wants to lift the day
To spread the light

Hope is outside my door

To erase darkness and despair
To bring laughter and joy
To bring the sun

Hope is outside my door

To say everything will be alright
To inspire me
To push me forward

Hope is outside my door

To shine a bright light
To show me the moon
To help me remember my path
To bring possibilities

Hope is outside my door
