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.
