You'll be here tomorrow
But I feel you today
Waiting with your blowing, blustery winds around the corner.
Some may dread the winter you bring,
But I welcome you with open arms.
You usher us in to a warm, cozy season
That tells us to stay a little bit longer in the warmth with our friends
Or read an extra few pages in our book
And snuggle under the covers with our loved one
And light one more candle
And eat an extra bowl of soup.
You usher us in to a white, clean season
That reminds us that there is still a beauty that touches everything,
A blanket of peace and quiet that covers the cold and the barren.
