I Choose To Believe! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

i chose to believe
in the taste of morning,
the smell of sunlight

unwrapping the day!
in the eyes of strangers,
the stories unspoken

written on faces
by trial and fire!
in the companionship

of dogs... who know
and sometimes divulge!
in the lamp and the ashtray

and your body wrapped in sleep!
