Clouds had settled in on a frigid day.
Their love was frozen, held in place.
His loving stares and her fair love
Could not conquer their stubbornness.
No matter how hard she tried she was ridiculed.
All the signs he had shown with great care
Were not perceived by others other than her.
He had loved her for quite some time,
And she well knew what he wanted.
But how was she to speak up?
How was he to get past his reputation to love her for real?
She tried so hard to get past the stares
Past the rumors and humored lies
And he saw so well past and tried hard as well.
