Warm thoughts

The cold wind whips

Yellow and orange leaves

Around the monuments

My gloved fingers

Trace the letters of your name

On the cold polished stone

I remember the days and nights

Lying next to you

Holding you in my arms

Remembering the warmth of your body

As we slow-danced in the living room

The memories still make me smile

And shiver for reasons

Other than the weather

    Thanks for nearly making me nearly tear up at work!
    No, seriously. Thank you for that beautiful moment, for this beautiful poem :).
