The Wintry Night

The night that was so wintry
The cold breeze brushed aside my hair
I looked around and saw a few
Comforting each other
With an embrace that I longed for
Then and there from you
From your body, your warmth
I tried embracing myself alone
Tears welled up in my eyes
Noticing a bystander staring at me
I pretended to feel cold
The bystander smiled as if
He understood what I faked
Putting his palm out in the cold air
He turned around, and walked
Taking out his white walking stick
A woman walked past and held his hand
I stood their watching as the two
Embraced in the comfort of that night
I stood their watching as the two
Disappeared into the dark wintry night.
