Flame of Hope poem by Jill Schumacher, BSN, MS, DNM
“Do you know the Flame of Hope?
Yes! I breathed deeply. Yes!
I’ve seen it in the eyes of a mother.
I’ve heard it on the breath of a newborn.
I’ve felt it in the silence of the old ones.
I’ve touched it when I had reached the limits,
And could do nothing but surrender.”
Winged White Dove, Clarion of Hope Lyrics & Music by Jill Schumacher, BSN, MS, DNM
“Flame of Hope, birthed through Love,
Fueled by the undying embers of compassion.
May this flame shine through adversity,
Shine beyond uncertainty,
May it shine bright in the face of cruelty,
Illuminating peace, grace, healing,
Birthing the flight of the Winged White Dove,
Clarion of Hope.”
