Hope,
My most precious friend,
My most sacred friend,
My most soulful friend
And
My most dependable friend,
Only because of you
I can live on earth.
Only because of you
I dare to believe
That someday I will be able
To see my Beloved Supreme personally.
Only because of you
I dare to believe
That there shall come a time
When humanity’s face and fate
Will be totally changed.
Only because of you
I feel that there shall come a time
When the animal in man
Will be transformed,
The human in man will be perfected
And
The divine in man will be fulfilled.
Hope,
My Eternity’s unparalleled friend,
Both God and I treasure you,
For both of us need you at every moment.
I need you to realise
My Beloved Supreme.
My Beloved Supreme needs you
To manifest Him here on earth.
