Winter's Lament

Though the wind blows cold outside my door,

It's warm beside the fire.

The kettle whistles cheerfully -

I have all that I require.

Yet my soul is ever longing

For a day so long ago,

When jonquils danced beneath the sun,

And he and I joined in the fun -

All part of springtime's show.

We walked along a country lane

And planned the years ahead.

All around the earth was blooming -

Winter's gloom had fled.

We were filled with hope and promise;

We had dragons yet to slay.

We knew that someday there would be

A spring our eyes would fail to see -

Yet it seemed so far away.

smiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rose

Now our country lane has vanished,

But just to mortal eyes.

Confused by time we fail to see

What is real and what's disguised.

Like a ghost ship ever sailing

With no respite from the sea,

The patterns that our lives have traced,

Are always there - can't be erased.

What was will ever be.

smiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rose

So in winter I remember

The sweet warm days now gone,

'Till the tulips bloom and nature smiles

To hear the robin's song.

Then the mist of time is lifted;

Life sparkles like a gem.

For now my love comes back to me

To await the time impatiently,

When I will go to him.

smiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rosesmiley - rose
