you were made in reckless hope

you were made in reckless hope,
when a speck of light in the utter darkness
crept into our vision

life and death,
in such equal chances
should bring us all to our knees

and it does,
it does

yet we rise,
we rise

and i rest my hand
over the spot where she once slept

and i weep and then
somehow i smile

at the quiet  possibility
that maybe luck this time
will be on our side
