You gathered up my dreams...

when they all blew away.

October left wounds in us.
It completely called our bluff.
But it wrapped your smile around me.
And that is something I will never forget.

November watched me fall apart.
But it let me catch my breath.
And it never let that defeat us.
The only C word we know now is Courage.

December made me recall your laughter.
It helped us up and dusted us off.
It showed me your strength.
It taught me to be steady. Solid.

January invited me to forgive.
But most importantly, it forgave me.
It followed me for a thousand miles.
And it sounded like a piano in the morning.

And now February is on its way, my love.
And it looks promising. as long as you are here.

People seem not to see that their
opinion of the world is also
a confession of their character.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
