Choosing You

(Pocket Poetry)
by Jane Seabrook


Minute by minute and hour by hour

You carried me through the day.

By sheer force of will and determination

We kept the darkness at bay.

It was a day to hope for a better future,

A day to try and leave the past behind.

For I am sick and weary of grief

Exhausted with the burden of sorrow.

The past cannot be undone

But we can shape the future,

And as much as it is in my power to do so

I choose freedom and friendship and you.
