Winter has begun

This week brought fresh snow and bitter cold to the air. You texted me and told me that it's fireplace weather. You took the words right out of my heart. For a moment in my week you reminded me of one of those things I wanted to share with you. As often as possible. Sitting on the sofa near the fireplace with you with just a little light, no television, us just talking. How sweet the sound. I miss you. Wish you could know that. Wish it could touch your heart. I know you're not with me anymore. Wish you could be instead of going your own way. 

The winter has begun. Wherever we are. It is here in more than a season's way.
