"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." --Marcus Aurelius


to the girl with eyes like time,
and a heart just like mine
i want you to stay warm
this winter.
in all your dizzy tributes, frays, your
young and wild ways
you be sure to wear your sweaters
however you want
and from the cold green grass below
blink up
at stars or lack thereof and know,
drink up,
this uneasiness that comes with young and love and wish and wander;
because we will never find happier days than these
nestled in mugs of hot coffee
handholds and hugs and belonging
to somebody everyone
always and finite, we stand united
against the freeze and the lessons to come
yes, you,
you’re the steadfast, the smiling,
hopeless beguiling
tonic-and-lime kind of wild
mark my words, i don’t take you for granted
your alliances are few but enchanted
and among this rare band you’ve assembled
we’re the blessed, the ragged, the loved
and you live in the center
of all our adventures
cheer us on when we’re out in the rain
yes, you,
to the girl with eyes like old times
and a heart just as ardent as mine,
i want you to stay warm
this winter.

"Ardent"? Nice. I raise my coffee mug to you because this poem is wonderfully written. It's mama couldn't have made it any more better than it already is.
