For The Best

I hold on to you tighter than anything else in my life.
I have faith that you will get me through no matter what's in store for me.
You offer me the prospect of a better tomorrow.
You grow and bloom in my heart whether I want you there or not.
You make me believe that I will be more patient, more loving, more tolerate and more at peace.
You are the cure, the relief, the strength and promise I need.
Without you I'd be lost.
Without you I'd be desperate and sad.
For the best or for the worst,
You are hope.

This post was written for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop, Prompt 2.) April is national poetry month...Write a poem about hope.

Your poem was amazing. I'm incapable of constructing a poem that doesn't rhyme or begin with the words Roses are. So yeah, you may want to avoid the Dumb blog today if you've not already stopped by just to prevent disappointment.
