What if Snowflakes Don’t Fall in Winter?

What if snowflakes don’t fall in winter?
and fresh buds don’t bloom in spring?
or summer doesn’t need sunshine?
nor leaves don’t fall in autumn?

Will you remember how we used to be?

the love we shared gently
like snowflakes falling smoothly in winter out of thin air unannounced, unnoticed
unspoken yet blissful

the dreams we dream, hope we hope
like spring awakening the earth
bringing heaps of sunshine after
the cold, gloomy winter

the waves of laughter we gave out
like sunshine on a summer day
rhyming along as the birds singing
passionately hot, vibrant and crisp

the memories we created
like leaves falling flawlessly in the autumn breeze, with cooling temperatures and darkening nights

What if snowflakes don’t fall in winter?
and fresh buds don’t bloom in spring?
or summer doesn’t need sunshine?
nor leaves don’t fall in autumn?

Will you still love me tenderly?

(when blue is bluer and cold is colder, but love is lovelier)

P.S.

Sending more love guys as more territories implemented rigid travel bans and lockdowns.❤❤❤

  2. Not only is this a lovely poem, it would make a great song as well. Don’t you think? Lyrical and light with longing and wonder. (By the way, we had snow flurries all morning here in New England. What if the snow didn’t fall? So grateful it does, but more grateful for Spring). 🙂

  3. I fear there will be a new definition of ‘public’ for children to try and understand.
    public during the time of social six foot distancing. For those you can – hug them every chance you can.
