Analysis of Hopeful Heart



I hope that someday I’ll find
That gentle one for me
A calm and warm feeling
Just knowing who you’ll be

Just the right words are
Clearly not enough
A special touch that warms my heart
Hopeful, turns to love

A waited kiss, a song like this
Embraces seem so short
A midnight chat and all of that
A hopeful I had thought

The night so new, A candle lit
Stories to be told
A warm blanket for you dear
Whenever you are cold
