Lawrence S. Pertillar (February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)
Relied Upon For Their Honesty
Most playmates from my childhood,
Have long been gone to move on...
To other experiences beyond this life.
And I wonder sometimes,
If I am remembered with the same curiosity...
As they are as their memories stay with me.
A difference intended to make and made,
Seems more relevant, meaningful and with a purpose...
When those known and trusted delivered sincerity.
And could be relied upon for their honesty.
So many who fake will never know what truth is.
