It has been a long winter.
The darkness comes in with the snow,
The window is numb to my touch,
My fingertips burn.
Tonight I look up,
The sky is cloudless and the sun setting in the west on the Hudson River takes my breath away.
It has been a long time since I have seen the sun set,
The days are getting longer and I know there is still a long road ahead.
There are daffodils at the florist.
Spring, is slowly finding its way here.
