Winter in My Heart ~ a Poem

Updated on March 28, 2014

Sugar sweet sparkles in the land

Twinkle stars glitter in my hand

Angels’ breaths shower from afar

A beautiful cry in the sky

A Cardinal sings promise, why?

When they say we shall not last long

Just like any soft winter song

In their hearts voices concierto

In our hearts no stain remain

Each time we hear their words of pain.





Bitter friends, so what do they know?

Like to steal our shoes for snow

It’s ours to run together

Our love keeps the warmth in them

They do not believe; they condemn.



Source




Our winter love is all worth

Brought by the winter winds of north

Hummed beautiful songs all of peace

Smiles burn fire and dewy lips glow

In the midst of the purest snow.







Source

Dainty snowflakes fall here and there

Softer than cotton on my hair

You lean over and gently blow,

Two shine in your pupils you see

They’re wrong; we’ve proven them to be.


Source


Like winter swans we glide in grace

Flap our arms in love’s embrace

Then, like crowned cranes we dance so free

Moving like timeless winter storm

Laughter, more snowfall, we conform.



Source


“Dear angels,” I speak silently

“Please bring more snow for him and me”

Our spirits are warm inside

December trust, faith in the cold

Sees a Blue Jay with eyes like gold.

Source



Christmas is here, you’re at my door

Gift of jewels I so adore

Pulsating true as your heartbeat

Yes my Sweetheart, I love you too

Oh, winter in my heart IS you.

      Weather forecast says we're unlikely to get snow this Christmas. So, no dainty snowflakes but there's definitely sweet sparkles in the land.

      And, no delays for Christmas itself...merry Christmas my friend. Wishing you happiness always.

      Love from the sky~
