As the chill of winter surrounds me
I feel the frost in my bones.
The ache comes from deep inside me
I feel so profoundly alone.
Then I touch the soft head of my baby,
His warm breath makes life come again.
I think of my past and then maybe,
Once more, you seem more than a friend.
Today, it is cold, it is winter,
a daunting, yet mystical song.
For this time, for this place, for this winter,
Love me, don’t leave me alone!
