Trust can be given or it can be earned,

For some it isn’t even a concern.


At times it's so complex,

Many wish it were a simple reflex.


Just when it seems you've found the one,

You accuse him for something another has done.


It isn’t fair to make one pay for another’s sin,

Yet you find it so hard to trust again.


Give yourself time,

To sit back and watch him self define.


Perhaps then you can lower the walls,

And let love flow like the Niagara falls.

Good job. For me, trust must be earned, and it takes a while for someone to earn it. I trusted blindly in my marriage of 16 years, and he forced me to take a look at how naive I was.

Hello D.L. Carroll,

Ouch! That hurt! I'm so blessed with this lovely poem and realize
I've been giving my fiance a hard time, but after reading this, I see how much he deserves my 100% trust. Thanks for waking me up!

Trust in a relationship is a trait we should look for in the person we may want to marry. If someone has slept around before marriage it may be a habit he finds hard to stop leading to the divorce court eventually.
Reviewed by Felix Perry 7/18/2008
You are so right with this one, all too often human interaction is determined by our past experiences and that includes trust. If we have a bad experience in trust than we tend to be doubtful for a long time to come or even have to let our lovers prove themselves before we will trust again.

Trust, is what I need to see in people. Once hurt, always hurt.
