    A Poem About Belief By a Jewish Prisoner in a Nazi Concentration Camp

    “I believe in the sun
    even when it is not shining
    And I believe in love,
    even when there’s no one there.
    And I believe in God,
    even when he is silent.

    I believe through any trial,
    there is always a way
    But sometimes in this suffering
    and hopeless despair
    My heart cries for shelter,
    to know someone’s there
    But a voice rises within me, saying hold on
    my child, I’ll give you strength,
    I’ll give you hope. Just stay a little while.

    I believe in the sun
    even when it is not shining
    And I believe in love
    even when there’s no one there
    But I believe in God
    even when he is silent
    I believe through any trial
    there is always a way.

    May there someday be sunshine
    May there someday be happiness
    May there someday be love
    May there someday be peace….”

    thank you, Jackie Wright, for writing these inspirational words in the card you gave me
