Love has never been warm to me
Its icy cold breath has always been breathing down on me.
Others boast of warm fresh breeze
But I’ve only been able to feel its chills.
Love has given sunshine, smiles, and rainbows to others
But it has only given me a cold shoulder.
Maybe I offended it before.
Maybe it wanted me to do more.
Maybe I could try and break the ice.
Maybe I haven’t been too nice.
Maybe I’m really just afraid
For love to be warm to me.
I see you pass by and often it’s not accidental,
I purposely wait until you come along and yes, it’s not coincidental.
But I’m not the only one crushing on you,
Others go out of their way for you too.
You’re well admired for your character and charm,
And that smile! Oh, makes me feel warm.
So as you go on with your routine,
I wait for you to swing by while I sip some caffeine.
My coffee has gone cold waiting for me.
In this cold morning, my coffee is colder still.
Much like your cold heart
Who left me lying on the cold floor
With my heart held in my cold hands.
And yet, I still drink my bitter cold coffee
As I toast the cold morning air
Remembering that from your coldness
I learned to embrace the warmth of my own sunshine.
The lights flicker and glow
The time and the moment pass by slow
I watch the world busy itself
Put myself up on the shelf
I sit with a warm cup of coffee on hand
Looking at this beauty so grand
And then my thoughts drift to you
Wondering if your Christmas would still be blue
It’s near Christmas, I hope you feel the warmth.
It’s Friday and I should be excited
But I’m up early instead of being asleep
Under the covers of my blanket
Keeping warm from the cold rain
I’m up preparing breakfast
Eating stale crackers
To fill my belly.
The warmth of the coffee comforts me
And the staleness of the crackers is somehow welcoming
Cereals, oats, or rice
As long as coffee is there, it would be nice
The cold dawn gives away to the rising sun
Shivers will soon be gone
To get you through it for a while,
Always start the day with a smile.
Roasty and strong
Sometimes lighter, for sure you can’t go wrong
Inhale the aroma
The sweet taste of morning
Fills you with such joy so warming
A cup or mug on hand to start the day
That’s how mornings are done, my way
Like his feelings towards me
Like rain so fine you hardly notice
Like how stuck I am now that I have this something for him
I knew it was wrong from the start
I will wait until…
When she looks at me
To her I am ordinary, nothing special
For me to even have this feeling for her
Knowing she will never fall for someone like me
Many adore her, myself included
But I am just another familiar face in this desolate place
She makes me feel warm
And I can’t help but think there may be a chance
If only she waits until…
Whatever troubles you had yesterday.
I told the rainbow to stop your tears and hear your cries
By sharing its colors to remove your grey skies.
I told the sun to keep you warm and to brighten up
To make your shivering stop.
I hope you know I truly care,
But to show to you, this I don’t dare.
I don’t have the right to care so much for you
But I hope you know, when you’re down I’m blue.
And so I told Mother Nature to show her care
I think it’s only right, I think it’s only fair.
I hope you know that I care, truly
Yes, I do
I only want to be there when you need a friend
A shoulder you can lean on
I sometimes want to wrap my arms around you
Make you feel comforted
I hope you know
I truly care for you
