And she had stories like sailors at sea.
Sights and sounds that I'll never see and I'll never hear.
I'll never know.

Tired of white knuckles and cracked skin.
I think it's about time for the snow melt.
Craving the suns rays that I've felt in July and elongating days.

Push the clouds away with the back of my hand because I want nice blue skies.

Attack the ice with sunlight.
Summer hibernates inside us through the winter, and there is still always a piece of her inside me. Announce the weight is off my shoulders.
I notice the bounce in my gait.
Announce the wait is over and notice the bounce in my gait.
She is stowed away but never thrown away even on the coldest of days.

You melt away the marks of frigid nights, of frigid nights.

So I'll await her return - as I have done before.

    General CommentOriginally, he let frost build in his heart from the absence of his love, though we can't be sure of the conditions of departure. He recognizes the futility of 'winter' and replaces it with summer. He moves on and lives his life even while waiting for her (again).
