Through City Streets - Poem by Samuel Richard Leonard

Let's saunter through those city streets
as the clouds drift among the buildings,
and shuffle through the trodden snow
with no end in sight and nowhere to go.

Tighten your scarf as the wind beats
on and on as we're shivering.
Walking out over frozen lake
I'll hold you tight so you don't shake.

Lay with me, let snow kiss your cheeks
as we slowly fade to dreaming
of someplace that's so far away
we'll wake when it is here to stay.

So saunter with me through these streets
holding my hand among snow's sheets.
I'll keep you warm as it's freezing,
burn your doubt ‘til you're believing
that I'm here for you through and through
the darkest dark, and your bluest blue.
- Samuel Richard Leonard
