Snowfall On A Small Town

Is it just me, or, when you drive through falling snow, does it feel sometimes like you’re in a magical sort of snow globe and just hope no one shakes you awake?

Snowfall On a Small Town
by Michael Romani

Snowflakes fell down that snowy day
In a small town found along the way
The streets were mostly cold and empty
Of nearly anyone else's company

Old cedar and fresh flowers
Bring out the spirit of the hour
Charging life for us all
As some on this Christmas morning recall

Breathing a little life into our days
Letting Christmas have its own say
Secrets must be tightly kept
Despite the faded tears we have wept

Life comes as it often will
Replaced as our others seek a thrill
And there then we are alone
Wishing we could turn our hearts to stone

Howling under the dawn's lingering moon
Slipping into crazy maybe a bit too soon
A good man gets his soul lost along the way
Ate up alive by grief on this winter's day
