What Can Be Said of Trust
What can be said of trust is this:
You will be loved before you are born.
Your teachers will help you
to see what cannot be written.
Your friends will hear more
than just words when you marry.
Your husband will mean
what he pledges in sickness and in health.
Your son or daughter will remember
to say hello before bidding goodbye.
Your doctor will be honest
when your chances are more or less than good.
Your death will be no more
painful than your birth.
The wine will be the blood.
The wafer, the body.
These words will come true.
