Cold Winter’s Day:
Over time the embers fade,
Like a portrait of days gone past,
The colours are now greyed,
And, you realise nothing in life is built to last,
Inside where flames don’t die,
I wish forever to be left tethered,
Escaping in memories where I hide,
Cherishing the moments spent together,
In my heart I still remember,
The moment when I saw you turn,
That cold winter’s day in December,
When I watched my whole world burn.
