Winter


A winter wind blows across the feelings,

It’s harsh, the cold stone of time is rolling The memories, like frozen moss, Cover the underlying new grass It will take years for the grass and flowers to show The warm thoughts that lie deep inside But with each passing day, I promise, they shall grow Till then, the gone time shall they ride Time has moved on, Spring is here and a soft fragrance inhales the air The grass has grown and is moving with the breeze Waiting for the flowers to blossom under the shade of trees The caravan of nature is speeding past But neither a bud is seen nor a leaf The flower lost its roots to the merciless cold wind The grass is growing along, without a tear for the open wound
