Hope is very special, and it doesn’t cost a dime.
Having hope may be difficult, but it’s worth your time.
Have it, and believe it could help you with all your worries.
No, it won’t happen right away,
So, don’t tell Hope to hurry.
When times all look bad, and sometimes they might
Just to have a little hope will make you feel alright.
Suppose you’re fighting a losing battle that you know you just can’t win.
The only way to hold your ground is to let some light in,
Having hope can make you glisten so, shine bright!
Getting knocked down by the wind suddenly seems like,
Getting pushed into flight.
Having hope in your mind, there’s no way you can’t fly.
I tell you sincerely and I’ll tell you again
“Having Hope is very special”
With it there’s nothing you can’t win!!
