ODE TO OLD MAN WINTER!!

This past winter in the Northeast was brutal…which inspired me to write the poem below…I also see this as a song…music anyone?

Til You’re Off My Mind
By Deb Cowdrey

I wake up every morning
To your cold and stark embrace
Rewriting all our history
It’s in your frigid face

I hope and pray and wish and dream
The chill will go away
But nothing is as it would seem
It’s here another day

You blast me without warning
Your stormy moods surround
With just one blow, a record low
You will not drag me down

Cold as ice, paid the price
Shivers down my spine
Must hang on, won’t be long
Til you’re off my mind

Been months and months of barrenness
The ice is in your name
Such lonely, lifeless, nothingness
I think I’ll go insane

And yet this isolation is a blessing in disguise
It’s brought me self-reflection
And some vision to these eyes

Cold as ice, paid the price
Shivers down my spine
Must hang on, won’t be long
Til you’re off my mind

I found a passion in me
I did not know was there
I’ve come alive, each day I strive
To journey without fear

So even though you’ve drained me
With your bitter, endless ways
I’m now refilled, there’s no more chill
It’s vanished in the haze

Cold as ice, paid the price
Shivers down my spine
Must hang on, won’t be long
Til you’re off my mind
Til you’re off my mind
