more light

these shortest days
are begging to lengthen
the december wind
stretching them out
hoping for a change
more dramatic
than one rotation
on the earth’s axis
can offer

and i am always
searching for more
light in our days

i will be the wind
pulling at the ends
of our time
constantly hoping
for a little more
an extra moment
with you
