It’s For The Best (Poem for a Frost Prompt)

It’s For The Best
Sometimes I forget
that I’m not there anymore
where humid winter nights
left a dewy frost
upon the grass
and every footstep
was listened for and heard
and marked upon
a lost landscape.
I guess it’s best
that the frost melts
and the footsteps
tread more lovingly.
At least I’m told
it’s for the best.
