Spoilers: Don't read if you haven't seen the movie lol.
own nothing and I'm not claiming to. This is just an original work
inspired by a movie.
Summary: A poem about what Ada might be thinking when she's looking out her window at the snow.
A/N: I still really hate not having my poems rhyme lol. This is also for a contest on one of my forums, so please let me know what you think. And please, try to be constructive, even if you hate it. Flaming isn't going to help.
I watch the crystalline snow descend
Softly falling, silently landing
Concealing my barren world
I open the bedroom window
Let the snow dance on my skin
Gather strength from my icy breaths
I hear the sound of movement below
Life still goes on
Despite my aching soul
I won't join them just yet
There is work to be done
But my heart is weak
I am slowly adjusting to the new life I have
But each day I wonder
Just how I go on
I pick up my book to find the answer
And there you are
And then I know
I wonder if you have survived out there
Would you remember my name?
Could you still feel our kiss?
I may not have know you for very long
But those few treasured moments
Are fixed in my mind
I pray for this fighting to come to an end
And bring your safe return
Yet fear of the worst lingers on
I try my best to banish those thoughts
But the time drags on
Dividing and changing us both
I sigh and accept the day that's ahead
Hoping peace comes
And you find your way home
