Snowflakes and Tears

She walked among the icy path to the cabin in the woods,
Where they last laughed and love was understood.

She did not see the dark cloud that was to cover her sun,
Not until the day was done.

His jade eyes searched her eyes of blue,
Deeply they looked and then she knew.

Their love relationship just hit a new low
Because his eyes said what she had to know.

Yes, there was another love because his country called,
Yet, he stood there in the snow, his voice stalled.

Years passed---but not her love for him,
She heard in the distance a Christmas song---her heart was grim.

She now walked this path with snowflakes and tears,
Caressing the hand that held hers now through the years.

Not knowing at the time he left a precious gift behind,
A son ---who inherited his father’s brilliant mind.

She walked towards their cabin that stood alone and cold,
Along the path where the blue snowflakes falls -----with her tears,
Through the lonesome---without him---years.

She built a fire to warm her body, but not her cold heart,
not until he came for her one day when a dark cloud appeared,
She would wait for his spirit so never again to be apart.

All she could do until then is walk with her snowflakes and tears,
And, keep it from their son until the time nears.
