Winter

Soft leaves falling in the crisp autumn air

Filling your lungs, leaving a fresh feeling behind

The house where the garden rots away 

From the place you grew up where fall was hot and sticky

Ice cream melting even in the month of December 

Is the last part of the year where sleigh bells ring

The doorbell chimes, alerting you to visitors arriving at your home

Is where the heart is but not where your soul

Mates meet up for drinks in a pub, drunk

On love forever more, never need anyone else in this cold

Hearted people in cold winter weather

Turned icy, the roads were slick, nothing we could do

To help your fellow man stranded beside the road on a winter’s day

Light had faded, the driver didn’t see him, I’m sorry

Won’t bring him back.
