Is winter here yet?
Winter set into my heart many months ago
The freezing block rimed with sparkling ice
Growing bigger with my fountain of black tears
How I long for the heat of summer to release me
To allow me from this numbed prison.
Is winter still here?
Since I felt your love slipping away from me
I feel the coldness of the north winds
Chilling my very bones as I continue in life as an automaton
Paying lip service to my chores and responsibilities
Doing what I must with an absence of joy.
Today the season has caught up with my already wintery soul
Outside the grass is silvered and sparkling with frost
The sky is grey but under the clouds I see a golden glow
No significant heat to purge the voracious cold
But adding brightness to cheer and enough heat to melt the icy vapour
You make the winter days feel long
Daylight is at a premium the day skewed to favour darkness
This suits my feeling of melancholy my dissaffection with the world
Like an animal I can guard my hurts and hibernate
I need not shine a light on your lack of caring.
Hibernation is impossible life gets in the way
As winter approaches we live in close array
The darkness is a complication but our lives are full of light
In the cold midwinter, we stay cozy make things right.
It is a season of more than dark and cold
Nuts and berries on the trees food for creatures
The warmth of a roaring fire ,as we take our ease
The beauty of the virgin snow on garden, tree and field
Logistics can be difficult but as humans we succeed.
Have I lost your love
Let us sit by the fire and air our souls
May the ice on my heart be melted in the glow
Even if your love has disapated
I need to tackle winter, love it and extoll.
