Surrender

Surrender

Your repeated cries
didn’t get through to me!
Exasperated you said
what you had to say -
it shook me to the base,
I understood finally
I am worthy –
of love, life and
everything around these.

The more I hurt,
the more I know the reason,
the more I surrender –
because when heaven slips
and comes to grip again,
you know you don’t want to let it go
