Daylight fades to darkness,
another winter eve does call,
the warmth of the fire beckons me,
as the snow continues to fall.
There is peace within my heart,
when winter casts another stone,
for I embrace this solitude,
this cold winter eve alone.
Perhaps it is the bittersweet thoughts,
of winters past where my thoughts do roam,
as a child in the early years,
with many friends and family home.
In this vast world we live,
this winter night I am so very small,
daylight fades to darkness,
another winter eve does call.
