trust by anelephantcant

she smiles at me
she takes my hand
leads me to her front door
she wipes my brow
she whispers sweet
the words that I must know

you know that you can trust me
to keep you from the rain
I always will protect you
and shelter you from pain

you know that you can trust me
my house is free from ageless crime
nothing can ever harm you
I can keep you safe from time

you know that you can trust me
you never have to worry
don’t be the slightest bit concerned
about the debt you are incurring

she flies my fears
she dries my tears
with a silken handkerchief
she makes me whole
she takes my soul
and she feasts on my belief

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
