16 shadows – yearning

SHE longs for home and warmth and love:
 the things that heroines obtain
 when stories end, and they have passed
 through all the sorrow and the pain

AT EVENING, she, with wandering step
 eyes the last bits of snow that melt,
 and dreams of going to a home
 she's never known, but always
