"Christmas Morning"

She sneaked back into the house
With frozen hands ungloved
and a smile that got me worried
Then like morning mist descending low
to visit earth's surface
she kissed me.

But I pretended to sip coffee
Secretly clinging to the momentary
warmth on my cheek--
Until I pretend again.
