Principles of Trust

In simple ways of a simple mind,
If an outstretched hand I find,
I'll lend you a arm to grab,
If you promise to let go when you are done.

If still I see a leaning soul,
I'll let me be a supporting wall,
And bear your head and heart alike,
If you promise to try and stand upright.

Suppose then you want me to lean instead,
And fall beside you on my head,
Maybe I'll tip a little slant,
If you promise to take my weight.

If I should trip and fall,
Find you with me to break my fall,
I'll never let you fall again,
If you promise to let me help always.

If I believe in you further still,
And you have stayed all they way uphill,
Beyond all doubt you shall have my faith,
If you give all this enough reason to be.

Further in as you venture heart,
And treat it like a precious art,
You can have my thinking cap,
If you will let me take my time,

Deepest in, if you take the chance,
Effort alike, when we dance,
Life itself is yours to take,
If you will put your life in me.

If all that is above is true,
Even when I swap me with you,
Constant across your time steps and mine,
Trust each other, we shall, finally.


  1. this made me cry so much...i know its supposed to be sweet and gentle and romantic...but it touched that chord in me and i coudlnt stop...


  2. @sun: aww... don't cry! Here... a scoop of chocolate icecream for you... now stop crying!

  3. Trust...looks good in dictionary after Betray

    and in poems too..

    ...hmmm..and yeah on my profile description...hehehe

    Trust each other, we shall, finally. Can that be achieved?

  4. @arz: Hi Arz n welcome! Follow it in real life... hmmm ... kind of... I think I do. As for your second question: I do not have enough data to answer that one. :D

  8. oh! how do u do it?
    i mean how do u write so beautifully :))

  9. "Struggling my way through the crowd,
    Felt I could count on me alone
    This world, i thought, wasnt worth my trust,
    Until, through the mist, ur verses shone..."

    Amazing poem man...

  10. @sonia: How can anybody live without trusting anyone?

  11. @swathi: awww... Thanks! How u ask? I'd be a millionaire if I knew how :P

    its a two road dear...n u hardly find companions with such deep felt emotions!!

  15. sry it ws 'two way road' :-)

  16. @milo: Hi n welcome to da blog! Oh .. n about the two way road thing ... did it seem to suggest otherwise or maybe you missed the last stanza. About not finding such companions easily - there you've hit the nail on the head!
