To love and be loved

What I miss about winter
       is the brilliance of the stars
on those pitch black nights
       when there is frost in the air
and my soul is wrapped
       in the warmth of my flesh

to know that I am alive
       that I have a history
that all things are possible
       in this universe of light
in which to love and be loved
       lends purpose to every breath

John Lyons
