It’s a cold cold world
A lot o’ hate and despair
Darkness out and about
Broken hearts everywhere

Ravens flyin’ high
Sucking all happiness
Turing everything fond
Into mere nothingness

Times sure have changed
Since you’ve been with me
You cleaned off the cobwebs
And set my soul free

I ain’t afraid no more
In this bleak winter tide
Sittin’ warm and content
’cause you’re by my side

Though the cold still lingers
The bright sun’s now out
And heat’s sure to follow
Of that there’s no doubt

Entwined with thy scent
Is the air that I breathe
We’ll both be alright
That I truly believe

To my wife: You are my light, my sunshine, my everything; thank you for lighting up my life with your love.
