Once Upon a December

Updated on January 13, 2015

When the world becomes a dark cold places, sometimes it can become inviting.


Evening nights of silent screams
I am left with unknown dreams
Feeling hopeless on this winter night
Left with a touch of a sudden fright
Once upon a dead December

Winter snow falls inches more
The icy winds pierce a boar
I only stare at the dreaded wall
Feeling fright of that one call
Once upon a light December

Only if it was a nightmare
My wishes would not be rare
My dreams would come true
As my soul once flew
Once upon a white December

I remember very well
My heart was in a cell
You found the key
And the water to my sea
Once upon a blue December

I remember your smile
Walking death’s aisle
We will soon be together
I leave this cold weather
Once upon a joyous December

      A beautiful poem, really enjoyed this. It reminded me of a Disney song in Anastasia which has the same name, I love that too.

      This one is my favorite. I agree with Frank, the cadence is excellent. It gives me a bit of a chill, and not because of December.
