Poem: As winter approaches

Why is it I don''t see you standing there so close, out of my reach, while you try to convey words that are swept away in the uncaring wind?

Why is it that instead of turning towards home, I walk on in the direction of where I''ve been before, where I need to go, the winter moving in, cutting my skin as I travel on?...
