A Love That Could Last

By Wayne Visser

How quickly belief turns to doubt
When we’ve been disappointed before
And how quickly we hold our shield out
When the wounds are still painfully raw
If only our faith was more strong
For no matter the challenge we’ll cope
And despite everything that is wrong
Our unfailing redeemer is hope
How quickly delight turns to fear
When we’ve been disillusioned and caught
And how quickly we tune in our ear
To the cries of past battles we’ve fought
If only we slowed down and gazed
At the sun and the moon up above
We’d be grateful and truly amazed
By the people and things that we love
How quickly the best turns to worst
When the goal is so nearly in reach
And how quickly we think that we’re cursed
When the road leads us into the breach
If only we focused on now
Not the wheel of the eidolic past
And believed in what trust can allow
To emerge – like a love that could last
