a winter's sleep

watching you sleep
from afar
wanting to cuddle in
and keep you warm

in this unnatural coldness

will my words
be the only caress i'll ever give?

will my letters
be the only thing you ever touch?

will the hope
in my heart
last as long as the days
we are separated

or vanish in the chill of the night

stay warm,
dearest companion
breathe deep
the life that surrounds you

walk strong along
all the winter

until i hold you again
