One winter night…

One winter night…


Out of the corners of
My eyes, I saw one
Starry winter night;
A boy with febrile hands
Outstretched, in search of
Warmth from winter’s harm.

And droplets glistened
Down my cheek;
My insides roaring
From within;
To see him shaking
At his knees;
In search of warmth
From winter’s wind.

The overcoat I
Wrapped him in,
Provided warmth for
Him till spring.
But oh the warmth in
Me he sprung,
Will last me till
