Snow at Night

This evening, I walked you to your car
and watched till the headlights were gone and the engine
became the fading smell of night.
I returned to the house and switched the light off
over the front steps and in that moment,
while the snow still glowed, I followed with my eyes
the footsteps of a pale grey ghost
leaving endlessly and forever returning.
