Unexpected Gift

Today is the first day of #OctPoWriMo – 31 poems in 31 days. I hope you’ll consider joining us! Love is the overall theme and today’s prompt is Surrender. This is my response.

It wasn’t until you

that I learned to

surrender

that yesterday didn’t

have to define

today

that true strength

comes from within

 

Even now when I’m

tempted to resurrect old

walls

I know you will stand beside me

while I revisit old

demons

that you will hold my hand

until my battles subside

 

Because of you

I surrender

I surrender

I surrender

 

to this gift

we’re building

together
