On a Winter’s Eve
Below freezing and yet so warm inside
Being here with you keeps me in the right frame of mind
and nothing can pull me out.
Scary. Nothing can. Frightening.
Here you are with me, God with us.
Christ penning the conversation we are having and keeping me
in time together, tracking each other’s thoughts.
You never know how much you mean
to the me inside the me.
But there you go.
Happy new year, you.
Happy new year, me.
Happy yet another year, God.
Christ be with us.
