In Wintertime

A song for the holidays

34
In Wintertime
Shuttershock

This song--is it still a song if you've never heard the melody? Maybe just a poem--was written a long time ago, back in April. I imagined a joyful winter holiday celebration with my friends and family.

And you know what? I still believe that that can happen.

This year has been tough on all of us, but as long as we can still feel a bit of joy and anticipation for a brighter future, I think we'll be alright again. I hope so.

The wind howled, into the night

While we sat, by the firelight

As red, as a summer rose

We haven't been this close

Since last December


We were told, we had to part

I alone, picked up the parts

Of my broken heart

But now, as we are playing cards

I smile warmer, than I remember


Cause we, are constellations

Strung together, no matter how far

All of us, throughout the nations

We will make pictures with one shining star

At a time


We will dine throughout the night

We will shine, cause we are filled with light

We will dance, under the patterned sky

She and he and you and I

In Wintertime


In Wintertime,

Oh, oh


The daytime is falling fast

Soon yesterday, is a year past

So when the time has come, I look back

To when, there was nothing to lack


We were told, we had to part

But we kept in touch, through it all

You guys still, touch my heart

Through tears and laughter, fears and all


We will dine throughout the night

We will shine, cause we are filled with light

We will dance, under the patterned sky

She and he and you and I

In Wintertime


In Wintertime...


Someday, we'll be together once more

Into a place with an open door

And our shoes will hit the floor

Dancing until our feet are sore


We will sing until we cannot

We will eat until our hearts are full

Join us where the feast is hot

We'll be there, and our hearts are full

We'll be there, and our hearts are full

We'll be there, we'll be there

We'll be there...


Because together, we'll always be

We've been through a lot, under the stars

Acceptance and joy, we'll come to see

As we go on healing each other's scars

Every time


We will dine throughout the night

We will shine, cause we are filled with light

We will dance, under the patterned sky

She and he and you and I

In Wintertime

In Wintertime,

Oh, oh
