Believe In Me

Donít feel Iíve let you down
Please, my dear, donít cry
Iím not too good at this
But I promise I will try

Sometimes I will be frightened
At times, Iíll run away
But itís not from you I run
And I promise I wonít stray

Itís within myself I go
There are walls that need brought down
I left you not alone
Donít let me see you frown

My heart has been closed long
And for me to let you in
I need to find the key
To let our love begin

So be patient with me dear
Give me a little time
To show you how I feel
To make your heart all mine

If youíll have faith in me
Our love will surely grow
Just bear with me, believe in me
When I say I need you so



 "I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me , this has always been enough." ~Nicholas Sparks from The Notebook

Enjoyed this... rhythmic and fluid. Your message is well expressed, and the presence of devotion lying beneath the gentle urging is easily discernable, brightly conveyed.

As I explained to my wife, I'm not retreating from you, I'm going inside to tidy up before I let you in.
Beautiful poem, hoot.

Beautiful Ruth

Hoot, very beautiful, and it sounds so familiar...it is hard to let someone in, when those walls are built so securely. Good luck to you...

Ruth,

I have climbed many a wall,
As this is what I choose.
I do not want the key,
For this I may just loose.

I will pull out all the bricks.
Yes each and every one.
To find you standing there,
My morning glory Sun.

Together we will build
with the bricks that lie around.
A simple little place,
Here upon the ground.

The key is far to easy,
The work is worth the cost.
Something always earned
Is much harder to be lost.

I will work to make you proud,
You'll see I really care.
And in the end you'll see,
I'll always be standing there.

 I have learned that the pain of a lost love will fade, But the memory of having loved will last forever.

Absolutely beautiful, Ruth.  It gave me goosebumps.  David, the reply was just as sweet.  I wish much happiness for the two of you.

 It matters not how strait the gate;
How charged with punishments the scroll;
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

Ruth,
There are some people in this world who know how to love and love well, and you, my dear, are one of them, to write of love the way you do,

Ruth so well said and written!  I love the reply FK.  In time the hurt will fade...and all will be well again!

Where there is faith,
there is love.
Where there is love,
there is peace.
Where there is peace,
there is GOD.
Where there is GOD,
there is no need.

Everyone, thank you oh so much for your wonderful coments  

Elizabeth...I can not think of a better compliment any one can ever pay me...thank you  

David...what a beautiful poem and such a beautiful response. Sometimes we tend to build up walls as fast as we tear them down I think.
