Surrendering sounds too easy –

To just give in – once again –

And believe the fallacies – the pretenses

for all eternity –

To hope beyond measure that this time

the words are pure

that tenderness will take flight and fare

for the better

that not one will break the bond of innocence

when love believes that hope will sustain

and bridge eternity for a moment such as this.
