Hope in Her Eyes

God is in the rain,
Sin running down the sewer drain.
Love is in the stars,
Twinkling on the strangers in bars.
Truth is in the rose,
Honesty can make woes.
Time is in the soul,
Eternity can take its tole.
Life is in the pain,
Suffering is ne'er in vain.
Death is in the day lily,
Just a moment of beauty.
Hope is in her eyes,
Dwindling, but ne'er dies.

The day to light perception is the most interesting thing about this poem. It shows how sayings can be offset by our mood or our state of mind. Its entrancing seeing some of the optimism vs. The pessimism. Very good. Please feel free to add to it
