I Long For January

I long for January
like I long for you
when dreams and aspirations
reappear as something new
with regrets and disappointments
that we’ve gathered through the year
packed away into the attic
covered up with Christmas cheer

I long for February
and the winter sky at night
when the stars we use for wishing
seem to sparkle extra bright
it’s as if they’re trying harder
to give proof of heaven’s plan
bringing peace and resolution
only lovers understand

I long for January
and the comfort she bestows
in the silence of her evenings
and the softness of her snows
bundled warm with candles burning
splashing glitter in your eyes
there’s no deeper spoken promise
then the sound of lover’s sighs…

and I long for January….
