    BELIEVE IN ME
    # # # # # # # # #

    Losing faith in me,
    She no longer believed
    What her eyes couldn't see
    Our love line - - - a bust,
    There went my mastery ~
    Her loss of trust
    That day,
    In many ways,
    Freed me-
    But was I strong enough
    After so many years...
    Of enabling?

    And they think...
    A good man,
    Is hard to find!

    Dito to Sierra's words. Had to be her loss, the good ones are always overlooked. Beautiful.
