THE SNOWY BENCH

Frozen in time are the memories,
Laughter, sharing of thoughts, conversation,
Solutions to the wonders and trials of life.
Sweet friend, how I long for this communion,
Sharing time seated side by side,
The twinning of our minds over tea.
To bask in the summer sun - a memory,
Cherished pictures of grace-filled moments,
Together, united, co-conspirators.
Today, all is frozen over, no thaw in sight.
I shall let you rest awhile,
Under the blanket, restore yourself.
Until Spring comes anew - like hope.
