Surrender to Love

It is not worth the pain inflicted
to continue our mutual fight
so let me be the first combatant
to wave the flag to make things right.

In an attempt to remove the darkness
that has crept into our life
I wave the flag that lacks any color
hoping it will restore the light.

We united together in marriage
born from a love so deep and pure
to stop this argument from ruining it
I wave a flag from the dress you wore.

I surrender to you completely
it’s not important to me who’s right
I hope the colorless flag that I wave
puts an end to this stupid fight.

    :-) Okay, this was a refreshing take on the colour contest and was really a touching and MEANINGFUL poem. Sometimes the craft can outdo the message--you've done well with both! Take care and thanks for messages on my poems. I touch my hat in deep respect, Cyndi
