Innocence of a child
Pure...untouched...free..
Like ****** raindrops
Falling from the sky...
As we watch snowflakes fall softly outside...
It's suddenly all quiet...
The fire crackles...
Hugs us tight...
in warm embrace
A gentle snore joins the crackling fire
Making music strange and beautiful...
With bellies full with turkey and wine
A Christmas simply spent
With just a few near and dear
Christmas in 2021....
Sun shines between the cracks
Of ominous grey clouds
Casting yellow rays of light
Upon the old grey house
Making it shine like gold!!
Snow flakes soft, airy, gentle....
Falls upon a pine tree ...
hard, brittle, green ...
Clinging to its needles...
In deep embrace....
Like lovers...
Opposites attract...
I am a victim of my imagination
The ceiling light that hangs above me
Might drop upon my head
The kettle boiling on the stove top
Might start a house fire
My creaky old wood floor
Might cave in under my feet
Anxiousness creeps upon me stealthily like a thief
Robbing me off my sleep
Preying upon my thoughts
I go thru life
Walking on eggshells
On the outside I'm just like you
On the outside I just pretend to
"be Brave"
So many of us suffer from anxiety, it's invisible we don't wear it on us like a scar and yet it affects us all deeply inside.
Sharing laughter and tears
Hopes and fears
Hours go by...unnoticed
Yet time stands still
For you and me
And our cold coffees...
We sat there caressing our coffee cups
Looking into each other's souls
Forgetting everybody, everything, everyone...
