pull up a chair

and sit for a while

i will sing you a song of lake and loon
as you warm your toes
and tell me your dreams,
one by one we will count them
and then set them free.

pull up a chair
and sit for a while

i will make you hot tea
while you hold your contentment
like a bird in the palm of your hand,
we will bask in the glow
of fire and friendship.

pull up a chair
and sit for a while

i will bring you a book and a quilt for your lap
as you listen to whispers of trees
and soak up the gold
from this one ray of sunshine
that i saved just for you.

    this is beautiful, but you will be happy to know this FF is learning to let the little bird of contentment FREE, it is all such a process that yes takes a while … then longer …

    I would love to pull up a chair and sit with you for a while & a while longer. I can already feel the warmth.
