november

November
Is the hardest month–

The autumn fades slowly into winter,
The trees which were aflame begin
To offer up their light to the growing darkness,
And the weight of a year
Begins settling onto my shoulders

And in the year’s eleventh hour
We pause to remember
We pause to give thanks
We brace ourselves for the days to come

But in the ever-swifter sunset
The stars glow a little brighter in the vastness of space
And time

And You come nearer to us
And we wait
And we wait
For the heavens to open up
