We think we are so weak,
‘Tender as a snowflake,’ they’ll say –
But I am strong, I am, I am!
As strong as that little snowflake.
One snowflake can brighten a person’s day,
Like mine! Or his, or hers or yours!
It needn’t stick or gather or stay –
Its being is enough to lift frowns into smiles.
That snowflake can bring
Fond memories –
Running up the hill –
A snowflake holds a promise –
It says, “You are like me!”
Without fear of change or transition.
Just one snowflake falling softly to the ground
Wrote this –
As nurses and doctors, family and friends
Lovingly gathered ’round.
They worry for me – think I am weak,
Needing such nurture and care,
But I have dreams and thoughts –
So much to share.
Perhaps one day they will see
The snowflake in me
Isn’t wispy or fragile at all –
Just a passing gift, like us all.
