myself- I'm many things that you can't label, so you can't label me.


A snowflake lands on my nose
My red cloak billows behind me
The wind is cold
My shoes leave prints in the snow

My red cloak billows behind me
A train sounds far away
My shoes leave prints in the snow
Tears run down my cheeks

A train sounds far away
Greif over takes me
Tears run down my cheeks
I come upon a graveyard

Greif over takes me
The sadness is too much
I come upon a graveyard
i fall to my knees at his grave

The sadness is to much
I start sobbing goodbye
I fall to my knees at his grave
The ground is cold and hard

I start sobbing goodbye
The wind is cold
I fall to my knees at his grave
A snowflake lands on my nose

I'm glad you did this poem in the pantoum style. It suits the subject matter. Like "fallingtears" says, it's like a cycle, so it works perfectly.
