Candle of Hope - A Collection

A Prayer in the sand.

I wrote your name and Darryl's too,
With words of love,
Upon the wet and hard packed sand
Just as the tide was turning….

I stood silently and watched
As my words were taken,
Drawn to the sea.
My words of love and hope,
Will stay, Held 'neath ocean waves
Till birthed upon your shore.


As you have touched my life
In so many varied ways,
So will this prayer I send,
Written in the wet and hard packed sand,
Touch you and comfort you
And bring you strength and hope,
And Darryl courage to face the fight
And emerge victorious from the battle.


I wrote your name and Darryl's too,
With words of love
Upon the wet and hard packed sand
Just as the tide was turning….
