We didn't see it coming,
We hadn't planned for it,
It wasn't part of our wildest dreams,
quiet and trusting you slipped into my heart.
I tried to shake you loose,
To find again the path,
I thought was mine,
stubborn and demanding you slipped into my arms.
We talked deep into the night,
We held each other close,
We promised to protect each other,
soft and tender you slipped into my soul.
Together we face each day,
Together we face each challenge,
Together we build a life,
Quiet, trusting, stubborn, demanding, soft and tender
This is my contribution to this week's Poetry Thursday. The challenge this week was to take a line contributed by another poet (thanks! patti) and build a poem around it. Patti's line was "soft and tender you slipped into my soul".
