In the summer she first met him,
The connection was instantly there:
She said, “I don’t know how it happened
But I was captivated by his stare.”
The leaves eventually changed colors,
But the girl? She was in despair.
For the connection they once had,
He had misplaced somewhere.
Once again as the last leaf fell
She donned the mask with the glare.
Winter froze over her bleeding heart
Helping her find solace there.
Soon the earth started thawing out
The ice bandage melted, causing her to scare:
For as all of the snow receded,
He found where the feeling was snared.
He returned and she struggled at first,
Her heart had suffered wear and tear.
But unapologetically he pursued her,
And once again they are in this affair.
Now together they stood in spring,
Flowers gave blossom everywhere;
But the seasons suddenly changed,
The snow drifted down through the air.
He stared over at her profile
Standing perfectly still over there,
Snowflakes swirling about her figure
And landing in the girl’s hair.
And she shyly peered at him,
Once more captivated by his deep stare;
She still struggled deep inside her,
But to her worries she said a silent prayer,
“The seasons no longer apply to us,
I still feel my confusion there,
But one thing I can be certain of
Is that I will always care.”
“I pray that we are not careless
And are careful not to err:
Though the seasons change about us,
I hope your feelings will remain here.”
