“Trust is like a vase.. once it's broken, though you can fix it the vase will never be same again.”


A disheveled face
In an unfamiliar place
Knowing no one
No one at all
Sitting on the sidewalk
Watching people as they go by
Till you see a kind face
That looks into your eyes
Sees the pain you've gone through
And wonders if there's anything they could do
They reach out to take your hand
Looking at them shyly you slowly shake hands
And the world evaporates
Can't see anything but the strangers face
They can tell you're hungry an cold
And invite you to dinner
You nod slowly an say yes
An as you leave afterwards...
You wonder if you'll ever see that strangers face
In that unfamiliar place again
Thinking of that one persons love
And knowing someone is worse off than yourself
You Journey to a new place
Searching for a new face,
to pass on that one Strangers Love..


The author's comments:
What I wanted to share with this poem, is that two complete strangers can show love to each other. Even if it's in kindness, they don't have to "love" each other, but they like treating each other with kindness and they want to pass it on to someone else who's in need.
