"The Snow Falls"

A cold December night....bitterly cold....the snow falls like knives from the sky....scaring whatever it touches....there she sits on a park bench....wrapping her body in a dark trench coat....her hair blows, getting tangled in her face....her eyes stream with tears....tears for a lost love or rather a love never found....the tears cling to her face because of the cold....he sits beside her....a person she's never met but will know for the rest of her life....they embrace....and he wipes away her tears....her pain....the snow stops....all is well
