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.

Nice one Friend. we all search for perfection but sadly we are all weak and fall and fail. Once we find perfection in Christ it is easier to accept the pain.....for we are found in our Beloved and made whole in Him. Keep writing and discovering the light of Christ thru it.
