(For Jana and Dr. Lopez)
I was too young, back then, to remember
But now, it’s something I cannot forget;
That the battle can be won through prayer
Though in life, by troubles, we are beset.
By virtue of remaining true and strong
All adversity shall pass us over.
Though times are trying and days are too long,
In the family, we can find shelter.
In the heavens and the home lies hope;
Hope that burns in our hearts eternally.
Through our faith and family, we can cope
And with love, conquer harsh reality.
Despair not! For the battle can be won
Dawn lies ahead! In pray’r, await the sun.
