My arms a perfect fit around you, snug, secure, warm.
It wasn't always so, like water flowing over rock
The years have smoothed out our rough edges.
My arms feel good around you, synchronicity,
Many seasons we have shared, summers easy,
Potent springs, but our winter walk,
Our winter walk is a stone cold test. Can we survive the
Freezing, unyielding ice storms of misunderstandings?
Winter has a bad habit of arriving unannounced,
A blistering cold front from out of nowhere, bitter winds,
Bone chilling anger drives us behind walls of silence
We hibernate, await the the thaw, it always comes.
Our winter walk refines, tempers our resolve
You have seen my darkest season, I have witnessed yours.
Now we can tell each other the whole truth
And nothing but...we can trust...this is the harvest
Of unconditional love.
