Love, and The Distant Winter

She’d always liked him, but he was
Her older brother’s friend;
She thought he’d never look at her
That way

For seasons pass, and days go by,
And dreams come to an end,
And expectation leaves. But then,
One day —

He saw her in the winter snow,
Just passing in the street;
And asked her out to dinner,
On the spot

And now, it’s been five years, and she
Cannot imagine how
They’ve come so far, or how it’s stayed
So hot –

But unimagined times can come.
She lives and knows that now —
The time goes sailing by,
It fairly hums –

She doesn’t take for granted
What she yearned for all those years —
Just lives and loves each day
The way it comes
