(un)titled surrender

it was in her hands
i placed my heart
a seed
for her to nurture
no where else
did it feel
as safe as there

it was a sudden relief
a gift
a shower of light
when she
first stepped
into view
like a dream

never before
did letting go
feel quite as right
as when
she smiled at me
extended her hands
and took my surrender

and i knew
at that moment
what was done
was what had to be
calm filled me
as she gave it
a soft kiss
