Poem: Comfort Zone

She snuggles up beside me
The log fire is burning bright
I whisper that I love her
We’re settled for the night

The music plays quite softly
Our glasses both half full
Her head it rests upon me
Warmed by old lamb’s wool

Love is
Love is
Love is
Love is just a pretext for a better place to be

A fox slides through the hedgerow
The owl hoots a new refrain
The wind it howls outrageous
And suggests a chance of rain

The new moon casts mad shadows
Across the placid pond
The air it is enchanted
From the doorstep and beyond

Love is
Love is
Love is
Love is just a pretext for a better place to be

A half familiar chord change
A riff that sounds so blue
Old folk music fills the air
It was made for me and you

You searched for love eternal
So tell me what you found
A passage of lost time
Now we are homeward bound

Love is
Love is
Love is
Love is just a pretext for a better place to be
