The first winter together was affable
With no snow, hardly laughable
The fireplace being empty and cold
The companionship was not as bold
It seems the power of their surroundings
First attraction, got lost and confounding
Thoughts turned on the lovers two
Looked closer to see just who
The other person really was
Being together’s true cause
The short fling had its flaws
They decided to take a pause.
Candles, fires, romantic dreams
Are only temporary seams
Sewing together lasting love
Is not as easy as it seems.
