A lonely vigil, her heavy heart stands guard
a passive sentinel, she can only bear witness
as every cool breath disrobes the limbs of life
one by one, golden stars fall from her sky
Silent pleas fill her aching soul, gone unheeded
empty, unshielded, her home, now depleted
devoid of the boldness of spring’s newborn fragrance
bare of fall’s golden shimmering dress
She too bares her heavy heart to the surrounding world
singing a lover’s song to last through the cold
musical notes of hope for the renewal to come
the warmth of her love, a blanket to warm
The quiet beauty of the winter’s snow will fall
resting upon the blanket of her heart’s kindling song
then, with the first breath of the rebirth of spring
destiny fulfilled, hope’s promise, ardently blooming
