A Whisper From You

You leaned in close
while we stood,
buried to the knees in snow
and inbetween the billions of falling snowflakes
with a sad smile,
you whispered:
"Tomorrow is composed
of more than me and my spring kisses.
I give you wings
to leave me as fast as the wind will take you."

Goodbye chains my tongue
and scars weigh upon my shoulders
as I ascend reluctantly
far away from this heartbreak
forever more.
