MY SWEET CHRISTMASTIME LOVE

my sweet christmastime love
you are the north star burning
anchoring my heart to your light
you are the fireplace that wraps around me
warming my soul my fleeting feelings
that everything won’t be okay
you are the hand i hold
the sky i see when i close my eyes
i want nothing more than to lay beside you
on cold winter nights in the cocoon
of lovers making sunlight
through the longest nights

the words fall short
there is no way to say
the things i feel so deep inside
so in hopes of expressing
what i cannot
here is a $25 gift card
to buffalo wild wings
i love you
