    I feel like breaking down
    just having a good cry

    don’t know if I can
    explain myself

    it’s just
    that

    the shades of my
    winter are blending perfect
    hues

    outside

    marble blue &
    steel grey

    with
    snow flurries
    doing a diagonal
    spiral-downy
    pretty dance

    in the wind

    I feel like breaking down
    and just bawling for days

    and I can’t express myself

    because when I think
    of wishes
    and gifts
    and dreams

    and the best of times I can remember

    I just hold myself,
    my eyes well up
    my heart gets full

    meditating on
    the blessings of December

    I remember winters in damp rooming houses and cheap motels, huddled together with my younger siblings; feeling responsible for them at only 9 years old. And I remember how I never shed a tear. Too frozen hard to cry.

    And now I "meditate" on the first winter that took my breath away when love eased my pain and warmed me up from the inside...melting me softly. And uncontrollable tears flowed for the first time...

    It's good to know the bad of life, because when the blessings come and grip your soul so tight it hurts so good!

    I understand what you're going through today...I know why you want to testify. And I know, when you just can't say any more words...why you want to cry.

    Thank you for this. :heart:

    You write

    the words and bring me inside your picture. I'm standing closer than beside you, I'm looking through your eyes.

    "Cry for happy"; I like the thought.
