Dark Cold Night
As I lay the last of the presents aside and look out,
so much on my mind. So much to think about.
It's cold out there, and dark on this night.
But thinking of you, everything goes bright.
Looking at the glistening lights upon the tree,
Lighting up the room, light going free.
As the fire flares and the wood begins to crack,
Forming clouds of smoke, a very dark black.
As I dress myself up, and put on my scarf and shoes.
The cat rolls around at my feet, a cute amuse.
As I step out onto the snow, and ice.
I warm up my hands, twice.
Stepping out, hearing the snow crunch under my feet.
Feeling the chilly bitter air, drain my heat.
Standing, watching my breath drift into the open air.
As more snow beings to fall, falling without a care.
As our eyes meet under the light snow fall,
Catching snowflakes on our tongue, even though they're so small.
Lacing your fingers tightly into mine.
Knowing that everything will be fine.
On this dark cold night.
