So far so good. Now branch HEAD contains your local changes. Next step
is to merge in the changes from trunk.

That is the problem. The command you entered makes your local branch
exactly like trunk HEAD, so it will discard your recent changes.

What you need to do is merge the changes made in trunk into your local branch.
From URL of trunk at revision where you made the branch
To (use 'From' URL) trunk at HEAD.

That will merge the range of changes made on trunk into your working
copy, which is checked out from the branch.

You need to make a note of which revisions you have merged in the
commit log message. Next time you merge from trunk, the 'From:'
revision will be the last one you merged here.
