Let You and I Rest


Diaz, Gianna 091281.jpg

Looking out the foggy window

Feeling the warmth at our backs

As the fire casts a light glow across

our faces

The white flakes continue to fall

in the corner the twinkle of light

boxes in red and green

with blue and yellow ribbons

lay underneath the tree

how do you feel I may ask

with a slight tilt of my head

in your direction

I encourage you to speak openly

as we enjoy these Winter days

not many will be

when the Sun begins to warm

our faces instead of the fire

but you and I rest now

looking out the window

enjoying the warmth

The fire brings to our backs

the love we share in our hearts

The gift we cherish most you and I hand and hand
