This Year of Love

You keep me warm on winter days
With friendly words and thoughts of you
You’re shelter when the North wind plays
Till Spring comes through

When pastel leaves first paint the trees
I wait for you beneath their shade
And hear your laughter on the breeze
Till Summer’s made

In golden fields the poppies dance
And you chase waves across the sands
I watch and hope I’ll get my chance
When Autumn lands

With rustling leaves beneath our feet
And tasty fruits on every side
This year of love will soon complete
On Winter’s tide
