The Melting Snow
Snow, shining with such a luster!
Coruscating at its best so that I won’t feel forlorn
Endeavouring to smile only to condense my tears
Pleading me to suppress my mourn.
Months, we did spend together
Voyaging different places, hand in hand
Turning this arduous and thorny world
Into a tranquil and serene fairyland.
But soon the summer would be taking advent
The sun ashes would force my only friend to melt down
Struggling to mask my grief, trying to conquer my gloom
Though I know soon enough, in my tears, I’ll drown.
I stood up, with my eyes still damp
Picked up the last snow crystal, and ran astray
Holding it close to my heart
Shielding it from the obnoxious sunrays.
Filled with despair, it took its last breath
But I couldn’t shed any more tears
For I would certainly be looking forward to
Embracing it again next year.
