There once was a time,
When I trusted you,
Took you at your word.
But that was before,
Circumstances and trials revealed,
That this time you didn’t walk the talk.
Respect was once earned,
Your character seemed proven and true,
Then a whirlwind disrupted my faith.
Did I expect too much?
Did I measure this man…
Against an impossible standard?
How do I move beyond doubt?
Once again trust,
One not perfect, but oh so very good?
How do I work my way back?
How do I restore my trust,
In a man that is very human…flawed?
Forgiveness is the order of the day,
My first step,
Walking in the path of Christ’s love.
