A walk in the dark through a forest lost
Tracks laid deep in snow to the knee
A burden toiled every step spoils
Virgin dust of liquid frost
White, pure, demure

Sadness cooled by the cold night air
The burn, on flesh bare, turns white the hare

Stumbled out, a clearing found
Lined by trees and mountain peaks
Glide along, on a frozen lake
Heavy load, thin ice breaks
The further out, the deeper goes

Centre point, a pirouette, taking in the last breath
Catch a glimpse, wink at natures bliss

A shock to the core turns off the heat
All the senses heighten except for smell
Sight is the first to go from what follows
Awoken in the arms of an angels glow
After death or saved from drowning
