WILL YOU COME BACK

Will you come back?
Please do!
I’m waiting for you.
This winter.
Again.

I don’t want to
make a snowman, alone.
I just want us to
chase after snowflakes, together.

Will you come back?
I pray that you do!
I’m waiting for you.
This winter.
Again.

You don’t have to
walk in the snow.
I will carry you,
As I would have before.

Will you come back?
I hope that you do.
I’m waiting for you.
This winter.
Again.

I will protect you
While you sleep.
Wake up, son,
It’s snowing…

There goes another year.
I’m still waiting.
