A Winter's Day
That winter's day was pure and white,
The nip of cold in morning’s light.
A chimney’s smoke was twisting high,
Reaching up in the grey blue sky.
It took me back to my faded youth,
A less complex time of trust and truth.
The days were long and filled with joy,
Our love was fresh, not brash and coy.
The still air was broken by icy chill,
Snowflakes falling on the window sill.
The journey was long, my trek complete,
It was time to rest my weary feet.
I saw your cabin just up ahead.
A place of warmth to lay my head.
I was finally standing at your door.
My heart was full, but my love was more.
You welcomed me with a glowing smile,
Your kiss invited me to stay for a while.
I lay with you, sprawled by the fire,
Your sensual touch ignited my desire.
My body was burning from lust and flame,
Our union removed all the past and pain.
You moaned your pleasures in my ears.
Our song was sung through joyful tears.
We laughed and played like no time had passed.
But our history showed we could never last.
My time was up and we knew I could not stay,
But I would always cherish this cold winter's day.
