I am a snowflake falling from the sky.

When I land will I melt or die?

Many of my friends follow me, with the wind we go.

Where will it take us, I just don't know?

Closer & closer to my destiny, my eyes wide open what will I see?

Fancy buildings people all around. Cars, trucks making loud sounds

Not many smiles upon their face.

What happen to these people in this place?

I feel a sadness as I fly on by, a few tears is it my time?

The wind has taken me on the outskirts of town.

 I closed my eyes before I hit the ground.

As I opened them ever so slow, I felt lost scared totally alone.

Then I saw many of my friends from this great fall.

Maybe this won't be so bad after all.

We laid to rest on this cold wintry night.

With our sparkles reflecting we cuddled real tight.

I know my days are numbered when the warmth makes its way.

I'm just not ready to melt away.

All of a sudden people talking all around

 Let’s make the best snowman in town.

Here I go being rolled into a ball standing well over 6ft tall.

Something different about these people I hear and see.

Their laughing, smiling, taking pictures of me.

So here I stand being part of the best snowman in town.

My friends and I are enjoying the laughter of the crowd.

Now here comes that warm day I was talking about.

It's time for me to melt and nourish the ground.

Don't worry I'll see you again, just look up.

I'm the one smiling in those cold, cold winds.
