Snowflakes and Secrets

She ran away from me that night

After she told me her secret

She left me in a state of fright

And I felt a sudden regret

I chased her through the snowy streets

Hoping to find her in the crowd

I asked everyone I could meet

But no one could help me somehow

I reached the bus stop at the end

And there she was, walking slowly

Her face was full of pain and dread

But also relief and beauty

I called her name with all my heart

And opened my arms to embrace her

She stopped and looked at me, apart

Her eyes were a kaleidoscope of blur

We stood there in the silent snow

Two souls with a secret to share

We didn’t know which way to go

But we knew we still had to care
