I'm counting on you
To bring that sweet gentleness to your world
And all that you do

My generation is losing its way
We don't know
What we're leaving for you

So may there be millions to feel like you do
Oh, my love

There is so much to know
There is so far to go
But you are not alone
When this is your world...
And I'm counting on you


---

The lyrics are by Chris De Burgh, from a song that is one of my favourites, called "I'm Counting On You".
A song of a father thinking to himself what is this world he is leaving behind for his baby, and ever since my son was born, this song touches me in a way very few songs do.

I have a daughter who has a 9th birthday coming up very soon. All through her life I have held and kissed her beautiful, delicate hands. This piece makes me grateful I always have.

I'd like to use your work as an example of trust in my research paper. Although that's not the intended purpose of your work I think it will still work. I hope you don't mind...but you will be be getting credit in the works cited page.

Please let me know if this is ok and also if you may have any other work you think would show the idea of "trust" better.

Thank you so much.
