{ to believe in you }


 What does it mean

  What does it mean to believe?

   In someone?

What does it mean to believe in someone, 
 the way that I have come to believe in you?

For none of the usual rules seem 
                                 to apply.

I believe in your goodness, 
 your innate kindness -

I trust you, 


               I have not seen you
             with my eyes,

     touched you with my hands,

or even traded a friendly hug --

Perhaps :

          new ways of touching bring
          new ways of believing
          new modes of friendship give
          new ways of appreciating.

Take, please,

              this my offer --

              you have my belief

              not that you will not stumble
             (as I will certainly do)



    You will always have my belief

One thought on “{ to believe in you }”

  1. This is a lovely verse which we might each share.
    My husband views these connections as a tangled web, something he sometimes sees in a recurring dream of life after death. I believe in now. i know you are there and to those for whom i have an affinity, those i believe in, there is a connection that ,for me, exists as a 6th sense. Sometimes it is a burden when silence prevails but with the tiniest bit of communication it can become a joy. There is strength in the thoughtful beauty of your words and i know you are. I believe in you and in your creative spirit. I believe that even after falling you will rise and some how still smile and i will feel it.
