Misty Night

On this misty night

Trees are backlit mystically

She cannot welcome

Winter with any warmth

Yet, when you are near

The biting wind is forgiven

The heaviness of her coat doesn’t matter

There is a warm fire in her heart

It glows

Beauty finds its way into her life

More emotion than she ere allowed

She is open and honest to herself;

True to you though you don’t know

She may never use the words

But she shows you every day

Trust this to effortlessly

Wash away her

Useless fortresses

She stands exposed and shy

Can you see her

On this misty night?
