The long summer days are far away,

in a land that feels obsolete.

To set pace for the cold night,

with suspended mist and that slowing down of time.

The all too familiar touch of the chilling wind,

the snow bringing beauty and gloom in the air.

Made better with a friend, the lack of a plan and

the resting flames from the fire that had once caused despair.

 

Why do you run my friend?

To graze the horizon ahead,

maybe to leave the pain behind?

Look, the cold is upon us, that horizon is foggy,

Look, the pain is far out of sight.

Why do u run my friend, try instead to pause,

Pause for that momentary breath

 

We are safe now, our roads devoid of fear

The children are out playing cricket in the snow

In the snow without any gear

The streets are brimming with banter

This time of a happier kind

We are still the same people

The same people from the same homeland

Come let’s share a cup of tea, and talk about the weather

Let’s maybe take a walk outside, or indulge in harmless banter

Of times when we loved each other, of when the doors said welcome

For then it was just us, us and no one else,

And our home that bound us together, as if by a spell.

 

Why do you run my friend?

To graze the horizon ahead,

maybe to leave the pain behind?

The same cold is upon us, that same horizon foggy,

The same pain is what I feel, it’s cut from one tapestry

Why do u run my friend, try instead to pause,

Pause for that momentary breath

My doors still say welcome,

My heart’s warmth will eventually spread.
