You are my summer sun


When the winter cold
creeps out like a old memory
without warning
the days get colder
and the chill gets into your bones
as if it wants to live within.

I think of you
and I long for the summer
and the sunny summer days
when the winter coat
hangs over the heavens
and the sky is grey
and even the sun is dimmed.

I reach for a blanket to warm my heart
and I do miss you more
and long for the summer
and the sunny summer days.

When the frost spreads over the backyard
like a comforter over a bed
my hands reach out to touch you
but in vain
and your space next to me is empty
and I long for the summer
and the sunny summer days.

In the winter mornings I do miss you even more
as you are my sunny summer days.
Without you its winter in my heart
and all that I am left with
is winter memories.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
