Lost Winter


Your smile shines bright

It is your guiding light

You knew it's on your face

Even as you try to find your place


Winter is here right now

Staying warm the question is how

The cold wind blows

Needing a place to go


The rain pours down

it soaks right through

looking for a place to go

At least its just wet and not snow


The cold begins to freeze

It freezes the pipes

Making them Break

Yet you collect the leaves with a rake


Rain today freezing temp tomorrow

How do you plan your week

Things pile up one on top the other

The holidays pass you see your mother


Family gathers all around

They drive you crazy

Yet the love is there

The holidays are still hard to bare
