You Are Not Alone

What do you say to someone you want to be happy, but you cannot see yourself being the one to make that person happy?

You Are Not Alone

A single snowflake falls
The air crisp and thin
Serenading the wind
It dances a hypnotic waltz
Fitting for the weather
That never wanted anything more flashy
And you catch it with your tongue
Running this way and that
To make sure that you don't miss
And proudly display your taste buds
With the snowflake already melted
Dissolved in the heat of your breath

The poor snowflake
A short life it lived
Careless and carefree
Delighted to meet you and the warmth of your smile
Until it was consumed by the same
And disappeared

More snowflakes fall
And you prance happily in the light heaven
Seeing the beauty of the iced water droplets
Envelop the landscape in a blanket
Keeping it warm
With a touch so cold
That cannot melt
Without the warmth of a human's touch

And so
The snow falls to you
Keeping you busy
Making you happy
You are not alone
That is why I am
This snowflake has melted
And can offer you nothing more
