Say my name
In deepest Winter
As icicles form upon
Your very breath
You’ll call me thief
Of joyful memories
Make me someone
You won’t forget

Say my name
When Autumn’s colours
Paint a picture
Upon the lawn
I am the forgotten
Piece you needed
Deeply hidden
And forlorn

Say my name
When Spring’s effervescence
Draws a melody
From your lips
I’m the words
You’ve never spoken
I’m the hand
That never grips

Say my name
Through Summer’s glowing
Let me be the cool
Afternoon breeze
You are cruel
You’ll turn here from me
You’re the one
Who’s never pleased

  1. Very good Helen. I was wondering if the meaning becomes any more precise/pointed if you were to use ‘whose’ instead of ‘that’ in the last line? You have written two very good poems for today, not quite Christmas Eve but hey, conversation starters indeed.

    Love the poem, but the title got the TLC song from the 90s stuck in my head.

    Merry Christmas, my friend! All the best to you and your loved ones in year 2014.

    Cheers!! 😀
