Trust - Poem by G.R. Gaus

Of all that I can remember,
And too many long forgot,
The few that earned their trust,
Never given a second thought.

The one who stands beside,
No matter the danger near,
Backed up against the wall,
The face that’s free of fear.

Of all that I can remember,
Counting fingers on my hand,
The smile of reassurance,
Together we’ll make a stand.

Names are placed upon the list.
Withdrawing one by one,
Is there not, a friend I’ve met?
Before this list’s undone.

Of all that I can remember,
The ones who come to mind,
Family has always been there,
Creating that lasting bind.


Poet's Notes about The Poem

As you go back over your life and think about, who can you really; really, trust?

    Not many GR - but at lease one gets wise with old age and take nothing for granted, including trust. Very good write. (Report) Reply
