About the Poem
Many years ago, my first marriage broke up due to adultery, and only those who have been through it will know the absolute confusion and utter pain it causes. I wrote a lot of poetry at that time. This is one of them.
This was one where I thought I could put the pieces back together again. Sadly, it was only temporary, but I still remember hoping it would work.

|Why doubt now? . . . when in the past your trust has been your strength.
Why doubt now? . . . if you believe love will prevail at length.
Why doubt now? . . . new promises, new hopes will be in vain,
When doubting still, you cannot see the love that's there, so plain.
Face the future smiling, weepers never win,
Make up your mind to trust anew, forget about past sin.
Forget the hurt,
Forget the pain,
Remember love, and love again!
