Winter Hearts

by lynnkennison

From here

I can see where I should be

Childlike imaginations running free

Hoping for the best

Somewhat trying

Somewhat sad

But life doesn’t stand still

Not for anyone

Down the road’s for looking back


Watching the special moments

Rewind, replay

Pause on the smiles

Certain memories last a lifetime

Winter hearts seek the sun

Running from the shadows

Life has begun



Why bother

Not today

Nothing is lost

Just tucked away

Save it for tomorrow

Down the road’s for looking back

Childlike imaginations looking up

Seeking out wonder

Hoping for the best


Winter hearts begin to thaw

No pretending

Living on
