HOW TO GET BACK
How must it be then,
For everything to be perfect?
Sunshine streaming in through an open window?
Always Christmas and never just a day?
Ever Spring and never Winter?
Winter is just a season –
a little colder, a bit darker,
but still only one breath among many.
Hold to the perfect imperfection
of your life.
Cling to the soul spark that animates you.
Dance in the rain – dance anywhere!
Keep the love you are in your mind,
and the beauty of your existence will
keep you toasty warm.
Our deepest, best memories give us
rainbows in the icy winter,
to draw us back to light!
