Trust In You - Poem by Brian J. Stafford

I slapped the face in the face of adversity,
But I didn’t poke the eye of a storm,
I pulled a tooth from the teeth of a gale,
But I didn’t let the cat out of the bag;
I put my foot in the mouth of a river,

But I’ll always put my trust in you,
put my trust in you;

I took the skin off the skin of my nose,
But I didn’t ride the crest of a wave,
I lent an ear to the ear of the barley,
But I didn’t hit the nail on the head,
I took heat out of heat of the moment,

But I’ll always put my trust in you,
put my trust in you.

    ...I didn't hit the nail on the head
    But I'll always put my trust in you.
    Lovely words about trust,
    surely, we need trust someone
    at sometime in life! Well done, Brian!

    A great poem, got a real beat to it, to be able to trust someone without question is one of the rare things
    in life.
