“I know I can trust you, but…”


Trust, like a tree in autumn

Questioned by the unknown

I know I can trust you, but…


Said branches to leaves

Said leaves to branches

Trust may break

Trust may be shaken

Trust may be lost, completely


Like a leaf in autumn,

One may feel betrayed

When suddenly let go

By whom they thought as their backbone

High up on cloud nine

Left to a plunging, cold fall


Like a branch in autumn

One may be shockingly abandoned

By leaves that leave

One may be made a fool of

By leaves that threaten to leave

That may be you, shaken, broken inside


Trust, like a tree in autumn

Broken by the unpredictable

I know I can trust you, but…
