BRUSHED BY COLD

Still the night air chill
softly pastels of breath
tears quickly to ice
ruby red the cheeks
glistening the lights
far away a thought
once when at home
now here so alone
many battles fought
awake so many nights
days extended to weeks
the air cut with a knife
brushed by cold death
still the night air chill!
