Life And Trust
Author: Clive B Ringshall


Lifeís many curves become hard to dodge
Of things unknown and unseen
Trying to bring ourselves to grip

Our tears flow
Our hearts cringe
Our soul divides
The lump in our throat finds a new home.

We pour out this honesty from our hearts,
Hoping that our feelings don't get toyed ,
Or torn apart by other no so true,
We manage to wipe away a tear,
Hoping never to be deceived by another,
We close our eyes and give our souls,
To all you who read us by,
We look deep in our heart,
We see the blood that it once shed,
For your judgment its just not meant.

In this world of clever disguise,
So hard to know if you are you,
Such a gamble to challenge life,
Of the unknown in fiction or truth.

As our hearts fall into a life,
Friendships and love come to grow,
Is it just a camouflage?
Something of make believe?
So very little we really know.

Too much life is a game to thee,
Yet they live their life over and over,
Then just like the merry go round,
Your life is all to near its very end.

We hope some day,
That the ones that tear our heart apart,
Will soon begin to understand,
That life does repeat itself in a sense.

To be in our shoes some rainy day,
The pain that they will feel is the one we share today,
A severe stabbing at the heart
As it starts shredding and tearing apart,
To heal again and trust once more,
This is what our friendships all about,

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

This poem I wrote with a special friend, who we all know as compassionate, Loving, Giving, Trusting, and a voice you can believe in,
I give you so much credit for this and so much more,
To My Special Friend and Iím sure yours to
Our guided light Terrie

Meri & Clive, the canvass of life is in our hearts

Meri,in this life we cross many paths and we determine how we are going to touch another soul...i try by letting the love that i have for the man that i love melt and fuse itself into words that i write whether solo or sharing it with a good friend..when given the opportunity i dare not let it pass me by..and nither should anyone else... Clive, this was our baby.. i will accept part credit..our thoughts set it in breathing and placing ourselves in someone elses path..ya know how my thoughts can breath on their own..

not too shabby..
