Winter’s time

On my path I must not stray,
‘Cause two paths won’t lead into one.
Its winter’s time and I must be on my way

Backward little crystals dance in child’s play.
Not a notice, just naïve about the rising sun
But the cold winds are rising, I must not delay.

On my stable horse, I must disobey
Time in its stance before it begun.
Its winter’s time and I must be on my way.

I’m tempted to stay in this place so cliché
Where thoughts are pleased to be left undone
But the cold winds are rising, I must not delay.

It is quiet here; I wish I could rest for the day.
Rest here in peace just before the beginning sun
Its winter’s time and I must be on my way.

But I must keep going and not stray away
For what I’ve done will never be done.
But the cold winds are rising, I must not delay.
Its winter’s time and I must be on my way.

 Profile Picture

You used to be on my profile picture;
you used to be on my wall.
You used to be something of fixture,
Standing somewhat twelve feet tall.

We used to text all day and talk all night.
We used to smile like it would last.
We used to live like it might
Not matter to all those who thought it too fast.

I now think of you all the time, all the richer.
So the thoughts and dreams came down in streams.
You used to be on my profile picture;
now you rest upon my dreams.
