Don't wait till the end...

Ask me in December, Babs' unofficial Challenge

Ask me in December,

when the trees lose their green,

the birds fly far away,

and the forests fall asleep.

Ask me, when no one's around

on the snowy street,

where memories are found

and new ones are made.

Ask me if I have faith...

Look! Just stop for a moment,

admire the majestic sunset,

dance and laugh,

be young once again.

don't be afraid

of showing your real self

because that's you

when you smile,

when you cry,

when you say that you're fine

but you're broken inside

and I know that you lie

I don't want you to hide,

just talk to me, alright?

Ask me if we have time,

I'll say "yes, we do,

and we deserve to have"

and you know what?

Ask me now!

Don't wait till the end,

don't look for snow or cold

or any of that,

don't ask others,

ask me, a friend...

    Beautiful piece! It feels like too often we don't realize how much our loved ones might be suffering until it is too late (in this case, until it's already December)

  • I love this!!! It's sweet how it ends in asking a friend!!! Excellent work Anna!!!
