A Prayer of Hope--By Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson--Canary Islands

A Prayer of Hope

What-ere maybe I think of thee
And I pray my love is felt
For you have always given me
A real good hand dealt

Across the miles you’ve been happy to share
Inspiration for poets everywhere
If a phrase came you let it flow
To inspire others with a glow

Now in your need comfort we send
So you’ve strength needed to fight
All pain and hardship found in life
For inspiration not to blight

Putting pen to paper does bring strength
When expressing self at length
It helps us come to terms and cope
When we write a prayer of hope

Patricia Ann Farnsworth-Simpson is a coal miner’s daughter, the only girl among 6 lads. A young mother to a son, she became a widow before she turned 18. Patricia, then, married her childhood sweetheart who fathered her lovely son and two wonderful daughters. Her children encouraged her to pursue her own talents. After 51 years of marriage, she became a widow again recently. She fills her time with poetry, helping others whenever she can.


  1. Dear Patricia, "A Prayer of Hope" is not only a good poem
    But is an example for any writer to follow. I like it
    Keep your prayed for writing inspiration flowing.

  2. Dear Patricia,
    In the times in which we live, how we need your "Prayer of Hope."
    Thank you,
