Sweater Weather Dues

Originally meant for December 20th, National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day!

Sweater Weather Dues
by Michael Romani

Tell me now
Was it just a trick of the light
That led me somehow
To see things differently that night

They tell me it was only you
Dressed in an ugly Christmas sweater
And tell them that no one else will do
Or could have worn that sweater any better

Rudolph was very poorly knitted
But, I barely noticed you see
Because of how well he fitted
On the girl who is my destiny

I suppose holiday celebrations
Depend on the side of line you're on
But nothing could stop my anticipation
Of thoughts of that sweater being gone

I smiled deeply into your smiling eyes
In no judgment of your convention
Telling me that tacky bit should not surprise
It was just a part of your traditions

Toying with the cross I work on my neck
You smiled me into a much better mood
Until your touch nearly made me a nervous wreck
With the happiness and joy filling me up like food

Food of the soul that has it's best meaning
When we learn to truly see who each are
My sweater weather girl, always leaves me dreaming
Like melody strummed across the strings of my guitar
