To be able to have someone to trust,
is something that is a must.

We all would like someone that we can rely,
to never have them to us lie.

To know that they will never leave or stray,
is the contentment way.

Afraid we will never find it in time, we rush in.
To be used and abused is a sin.

Don't be a "Fool that rushes in"
Trust is earned and takes time

------- Author's Notes -------

Had to put my thoughts so others could see and maybe someone will keep from making my mistakes.

It takes a very wise person

to learn from another's mistakes. We always have the best interests of those we love, in our hearts, when we give advice. We should take our own, and be friends to ourselves, also. *Note to self...yeah, do that!

It's sometimes easier to give advice than to follow it yourself ~ I've been there LOL!
This poem is a good message to us all.
