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


that yesterday didn’t

have to define


that true strength

comes from within


Even now when I’m

tempted to resurrect old


I know you will stand beside me

while I revisit old


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
