Winter’s Comin’


Let a little bit

of that old hate go.

Let some peace settle in,

like the first deep snow.

If you break a little bit

and the tears do flow,

that’s okay,

we know

that’s just the way it goes.

I’ve been worrying

a lot for you.

Don’t have many friends

and I’ve lost a few.

Thinking about things

that you’ve got to do

is like waiting for coffee

you forgot to brew.

Don’t let the day

get away from you.

we’re all sitting here

a little bit confused.

Banged up, battered, and bruised.

Like old tools,

still waiting to be used.

Winter’s comin’ soon,

we all know.

Probably a good idea

to let that old hate go.
