Hold My Trust

You are my hero, but do you know?
I think I‘ve been quite clear.
When I gave you my trust you held it,
please continue to hold it dear.
You used what you had to lure me out-
you lured me out with life.
Life I’d forgotten how to live,
life I’d barely witnessed.
Yet you showed me a future, a future
from the past: you helped me to forgive.
Forgive and at the same time not-
holding back my trust.
Hold my trust
‘I won’t let you get hurt again,’ you said
But you know. You’ll leave. But to me you’ll stay.
Hold my trust and I promise you
I won’t give your trust away.
