The Chill©

By Felina Silver Robinson

There is a chill that continues to chase me

There is nothing that I can do to comfort it

It causes me to close my eyes for I’m too cold to continue

As I sleep I dream of the possibility that I might freeze and never again awaken

To my delight the warmth of the sunlight touches upon my stone cold flesh

Life once more lifts me from my dreadful slumber

I find myself grateful for the daybreak hour

And the possibility of another tomorrow
