Not Just Yet

 

He ran with a smile to greet me

Bundled and ready to brace the cold

My nephew has grown, soon he’ll be gone

But now he’s only four years old

 

He asks me to unlock the higher lock

Ready to go outside and play

I hesitate, he becomes impatient

Pouts and says, “I’ve waited for this all day”

 

I think about not letting him out

It’s far too cold out there

Too dangerous and scary

- And lonesome too

He looks up at me and stares

 

Want to know my biggest pet peeve?

It happens every New Year’s Eve

When there’s a fresh ground of snow

Everywhere that you go

 

- And no one has yet to step outdoors

 

The snow remains untouched, pure,

And still innocent

It’s yet to be corrupted

It has the freedom to roam

Restricted by no one

It can look to the sky

And feel right at home

-It's safe …

 

He looks into my eyes and sighs

Tells me to keep my promise

I let the door open wide

He runs outside

And I look towards the sky for solace
