Oh how I would like to spend
A week or two with you,
Nestled in our winter cabin
With nothing much to do.

A huge log fire and mulled wine
Long evenings to sit and talk,
And when the snow has stopped
We could take a walk.

A book to read, a candle glow
Simple easy meals,
The gentle quiet of companionship ~
You know just how this feels.

A special quiet time away
When we could be alone,
Without the normal daily grind ~
No fax or telephone.

Winter coats all hanging
By the fire to dry,
Boots lined up, windows shut,
And logs of wood piled high.

A comfy sofa and blanket warm,
Books to read and ponder,
When I imagine how this would be
I know I'd never wander.

Waking in the morning
When the watery sun peeped through
Nothing much to be achieved,
And nothing much to do.

I know that I would feel refreshed
From just this time away,
But I know it isn't going to happen
So I imagine it through my day.

Our winter cabin far away
From bustle, strife and toil,
Such special memories to be made
That none could ever spoil.
