Winter blues

Winter blues
I know you well
You’’ve visited me
Year after year!
Your mystery I had to unravel
Your nature uncover
Your puzzle solve
It was not easy
It was an uphill climb!

You arrived without notice
Stayed far too long
Didn’’t want to leave
When the time had come

In hindsight I can see though
You’’ve made me who I am
The lessons you taught me
Were unexpected, unplanned

I tried to run away
Fight you, ignore you
But in the end
I needed to know myself better
To know you

Running and hiding
Anger and resentment
Gave no result
Acceptance, knowledge
Willingness to grow
Willingness to try
What brought healing about!
