does it....

does it
make you want to take a walk with me
trespass a little
and
leave our footprints in the snow
~~
does it
make you want to take photos with me
while our fingers freeze
and
our noses turn red
~~
does it
make you want to lay down in the whiteness with me
while we wave our arms wildly up and down and our legs side to side
and
leave behind what we believe are perfect snow angels
~~
does it
make you want to sit beside the fire with me
while our wet clothes dry
and
hot chocolate warms our hearts
while we talk about our dreams
~~
I thought maybe it did
