Trust

Trust - Thomas R. Smith


It’s like so many other things in life  
to which you must say no or yes.                                   
So you take your car to the new mechanic.  
Sometimes the best thing to do is trust.  

The package left with the disreputable-looking  
clerk, the check gulped by the night deposit,  
the envelope passed by dozens of strangers—  
all show up at their intended destinations.  

The theft that could have happened doesn’t.  
Wind finally gets where it was going  
through the snowy trees, and the river, even              
when frozen, arrives at the right place.                       

And sometimes you sense how faithfully your life  
is delivered, even though you can’t read the address.
