Loyalty - 19th Word-in the Good Words Project
Loyalty -19th Word-in the "Good Words" Project
This 19th word given to us to practice is Loyalty, in the "Good Word," Project. I will remain Loyal, I will not break my promise to write a poem for each word in this project.
The "Good Word" Project, was created by Jo_Goldsmith11, to help her/our fellow hubbers practice words of encouragement and inspiration, to promote good will and to bring recognition to unknown writers on this site.
When Jo first told me about this project, I told her I would write a poem for each "Good Word" she gave us each week. I am a little behind, but you will see I will keep that Promise.

Loyalty - being faithful to God's Holy word
Believing It no matter what we have heard
Trusting, even when you wonder why
Steadfast in believing we must never cease to try
Loyalty - devotion to our loving friends
Who stick with us through thick and thin
Even knowing of our greatest sin
Without condemning, help us to make amends
Loyalty - where do we begin?
With an allegiance or commitment
And to take a stand to be someone
On whom others can depend
Loyalty - is fidelity to the one we love
Consistent with our vows sanctioned from above
To cherish forever
And to always share our love
Loyalty - is an American Soldier
The Truest of the True
Somehow they become Most Loyal
When they are fighting for me and you
Maybe it is their Pledge of Honor
That keeps them duty bound
Or maybe it is the pledge itself
Because it makes them proud
Loyalty - Reliability on our canine friends
Who will follow you or me
From where our journey starts
To where our journey ends
My Friend Au fait said she could not read my tribute to ALL my hubber friends...So I am printing the words to say how I feel about my Hubber Friends again.
From the poem courage!
You're my Spirit-Lifting,
Gift -giving, Love-Sending,
