As the temperate climes of Autumn
Give way to Winter’s chill,
Where the endless days of seasons past
They have us longing still.
My mind begins to wander
As my thoughts begin to stream,
In the silence of my reverie,
From the depths I start to dream.
In my dreams we walk together
Beneath the lamplight’s dusky glow,
Each measured step in unison
Upon freshly fallen snow.
As we walk together,
As our breath hangs in the air,
It seems the perfect backdrop
As hopes and dreams we start to share.
In my dreams we lie together,
Two minds in tune as one,
In sweet repose contentedly
We don’t crave the Summer sun.
And as we dream together
Of all the Winters we will spend,
I’m so afraid of waking
Because I fear the dream will end.
