The Weight of Winter


, ,

Feel the weight



Feel the weight

Of time going by, year almost ending

New days ahead

Oh, but to sit and watch the sun set

On a winters day so clear so cold

That it chills my bones, cools my soul

Brings tears to my eyes with every Christmas tune

That breaks my heart all too soon,

I wait for the night with its stars

To bring those dreams of hope to heal old scars

I long for snow of years gone past

So deep so quiet a joy that lasts

All that’s here is bitter frost

In coming night where I feel so lost

Under this weight unwanted, strange

Where I long for a brighter dawn to rise again.
