Is that a day
still to come
birthing in the distance
rising through the stillness
writing on the heavens
the joy we’ve yet to know?

Is that a beacon
blazing bright
a siren for survivors
a moment for the missing
a reason to believe
the pain can fade with night?

Is that a hope
finding hold
on a city that needs saving
by a river that’s been crying
in a year that needs forgiving
Is this the light of a new beginning?
