Trust via Daily Prompt: Trust


you give your love to me

freely, unearned

it is evident

the way  you say my name

how you reach out for my hand

smiling when we kiss

I trust it


it is apparent with your participation

fully engaged, deeply immersed

with me, with us, your family

and your home

clearly comfortable as your true self


Your language speaks in small actions

a perceivable awareness of belonging

daily heading off to work

even when you don’t want to

and then… coming back


I trust nothing is perfect

my heart may still be injured

disagreements sometimes exposing undesirable emotion

love – true, vulnerable, aching love

has no expectations

and so, neither does my trust
