Trust


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 Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
