Lilac Tree

your soul, a snowflake

delicate, exquisite

a quiet presence

fell ever so softly

into my blazing life

and softened the heat

and as the cold

drifted into the fire

you melted

i collected your drops

and slid you into the ground

where the lilac tree

was in near bloom

and the blossoms

fought into life

brighter for the first time

to provide the same cold warmth

you gave to me
