Learning To Trust Love

Her biggest fear was to lose love
for she knew too well
what it felt like to be without
and not to feel loved
by your own parents

But when she met him
for the first time she felt that
she always had been loved
by him, by God
To protect herself from hurt
she had only closed herself off
to receive it

Still, she often didn’t trust
Many times she closed her eyes
then opened them again
She expected to be without
but then saw that love
was still there and had not left her
