I will wait in summer’s warmth until
you can envelop me once again.
In your darkness and your bitter cold
I am wrapped in a world of solitude
that speaks of my fractured soul and beauty.
O darkness of winter,
I wait until you can envelop me,
as I bask in the summer sun
until your embrace can hold me once again
like two lovers parted
like a first kiss.
O winter, season of darkness,
you cause me to stop,
you give me courage,
How you soothe me gently
with each passing day
let us withdraw to only ourselves.
O winter, I wait for your delicious
As a lover waits with
sweet anticipation and delight.
O sweet darkness of winter
I am your beloved.
