Proudly you stood there,
Twirling in the breeze,
Warm and safe,
With me slung over your shoulders,
Like a prize that you won,
A victory you needed to show off,
While I waited in the snow,
Like a tree in January,
Still adorned in christmas lights,
Sturdy,
Alone,
Marked by the past,
Enduring what I have to,
To make it to tomorrow.
