Cold Winter’s Day

Cold Winter’s Day

There’s a clear blue sky up above,
The crisp fresh air filled with love,
Ready for people to meet outside,
In unexpected places when they pass.

A young woman slips and steadies herself,
Close to a young man looking at shelves,
Their eyes meet and they both smile,
They chat and walk for a while.

They stop outside a cafe with seats outside,
Agreeing to have a coffee and a bite,
Warmth from the sun making them feel good,
Chatting about anything the subjects broad.

The clouds begin to gather getting thicker,
The wind picks up too, getting bitter,
The couple move on wanting to get warm,
Snow begins to fall as they embrace and kiss.

About Philippa

I am married to Rick and we live in a small town in County Durham. We have two dogs, a cat and two budgies. I am also an adoption survivor. In 1981 my son was born and I was then forced to surrender him. It took 23 years and reunion for my to find out that my son's adoption was legally known as a forced adoption and illegal but social workers got away with it because mothers didn't know their rights.
