Winter Stalks My Heart

Winter Stalks My Heart

Your absence falls upon me

Like an endless silken veil

That wraps itself around me

And drains the blue

From the sky and the sea

Fades the fragile blossoms

As they dance, blissful, on the breeze

I wonder if loneliness stalks you

Like winter stalks my heart

Stealing the breathless beauty

From the dew drenched dawn

Turning the gentle swirling mists

Into cold clutching fingers of grief

That reach inside of me

Chilling me to the core

On even the warmest day
