Weather’s warm, the sky is blue,
Perfect chance to finally unwind.
Alas, I cannot taste the kiss of peace,
For the storm that rages in my mind.
Been through lots of awful stuff,
Everyone has, in their own way.
But now that I have burned quite out,
May I please just fade away?
Watching the snow fall down from above,
While Sammy and I are lying in bed.
Silence is pierced by screaming winds,
And all of the voices inside my head.
Watching the rain fall from the sky,
Yet I’m inside safe, warm and dry.
And while our conditions are far apart,
A dark storm rages within my heart.
As an older man, I sit cold and alone,
My eyes lost in the rage of the storm.
Behind me at the table, my son and his girl,
Whisper, giggle and are warm.
