For Springtime

by Sephen Hunsdale

For months of winter rain
Four months of endless pain
And heartache
For months of chilling snow
Four months my heart does know
Just sorrow
For months a cold wind bites
Four months of lonely nights
Without you
For months of bitter frost
Four months my world is lost
To darkness
For months of frozen paths
Four months there are no laughs
Only sadness……but
For months of sweet warm sun
Four months I’ve prayed will come
In springtime.
