Walk through the Winter Wonderland

Wintertime has come once more
Father Frost knocking on your door
A crisp shiver lies in the air tonight
The lights throughout the city shine so bright
Silent lies the city; no soul will cross my way
A star shines into my eyes with colors oh so gay  
Trees are bare without a leaf
As I walk through the night in quiet reprieve  

A Song comes to mind
And I start singing to unwind
The sound echoís through the empty alley
As Iím walking along through the valley
The windows filled with light and glitter
A chilling wind that makes me shiver
I think of you to keep me warm
I wish we could walk along together arm in arm
I put my hand back into the sleeve
As I walk through the night in quiet reprieve  

My thoughts carry a wish especially for you my friend
May harm and sorrow be prevent
May all your days are filled with happiness and laughter
From this day forward and there ever after
May all the best will come to you
May all your dreams come true
I wish this for you with all my heart
May an Angel stand for you on guard
I come to the river, around the bend
As I finish my walk through this Winter Wonderland

My thoughts will be with you all
A small token of saying "Thank you for being my friends"

Lovely winter scene you painted, in fact you have made me cold, where's my coat?  Put another log on the fire.  It's sunny and warm here in California.

Helmut, you've written this with such a feeling of placement...the cold, the quiet of the street as you walked, alone, through the winter night, the windows glowing with warmth and light...a scene that one can easily know, within your beautiful verse.
