You wake one morning and sense a change, a slight shifting of the sand,
a murmured whisper, the faintest touch upon your hand.
Was it the waking from a dream or the mourning of a death,
was it joy anew of passion found or the drawing of first breath?
Was it the void of emptiness or vast realm of possibility,
was it the final release or acceptance of futility?
With a backward glance I view the bridge where yesterday I stalled
until the night stepped forth and accepting as it called
I gave surrender as it carried me across.
