i needed you to come. i needed the snow to melt and the green grass to stand proud. i needed the warm breeze to hit my face and send my hair flying. i was longing to feel the sun, to have it warm my frozen bones and turn my skin to caramel. thank you for coming so swiftly. for bringing your blue skies and warm afternoons. you have turned the branches of tired bare trees to crimson and gold with buds that will soon burst to life. you have spoken magic words to your flowers that coax them out of hibernation. i needed to know that you wouldn't forget to come when winter overstayed its welcome. thank you for bringing life back to a barren land.
