    HORSES THROUGH THE SNOW

    You ride with horses through the snow
    Melting into rain
    The witch doctor waits your arrival
    He seems to be lonely this season
    With the scent of lilac on the breeze
    Why would any god let this vision perish today?
    Why should any man strive through winter to die?
    Have we not rehearsed hard enough to see spring?
    All to become children in the play

    A single look can explain
    A single word can defame
    A single coin toss can change
    The outcome of the game

    Most times its not up to us to rearrange
    The joys and sorrows of this or any other given day

    I’m sorry children for missing your performance
    I came as fast as I could to see
    HORSES THROUGH THE SNOW
    I begged in the rain and tried to persuade
    PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE LET ME STAY
    DON’T TAKE FROM ME, FOREVER, WHAT I CHERISH TODAY
    But the usher turned without remorse
    Smiled and said while attending the doors
    HORSES THROUGH THE SNOW
    Tonight’s the final show
    All without tickets please, move away
    Please step away
    Horses through the snow
    Melting into rain

    What a beautiful, sorrowful lament. I'm hoping every moment on the way, in attempt to arrive, was worthy.

      TY RLW this was my attempt at a poem to express my sadness in the tragedy of the young hockey team and their families that lost so much last week
