Hope is a 4 letter word

Hope is a 4 letter word
Stepped around with caution
Breathing quietly, do not disturb
Afraid to murmur, this one syllable

Hope is a carrot on a string
Dangling just out of reach
Tempting, driving, teasing
Striving to take grasp, and own it

Hope is a feral cat
Quietly entreated to come closer
Whispering, pleading, promising
Gently taming the timidity away

Hope is a security blanket
Needed for comfort in times of concern
Cherished, loved, and taken everywhere
A source of peace, never to be let go
