White petals of hope

Who is this man?
And what led us to suspect
he'd answer all our prayers,
or even that he'd look this way,
his eyes uplifted...
Is he, too awaiting
an answer to a prayer?

Did he, too, pray
only after
the answers were beginning
to rain down,
white petals of hope
that fall like paint
upon the face
of one who trusts you --
even when we can't?
