Footprints In The Snow
Love In Winter
As I look out of our bedroom window
At the world in white, stretched out below
Memories of our time together
Are Like footprints in the snow.
Before we met I was Like a naked tree
Barren of joy, barely holding on
Like an expanse of unbroken snow
Cold and crisp and all alone.
To the onlooker, perhaps beautiful to behold
To me frigid and difficult to bear
My daily existence I lived in a nightmare
For my existence, I didn’t care.
And then one day, like a snowflake from heaven
Beautiful beyond compare
Individual, complex, and breathtaking
You added to my life a whole new layer.
Joy and laughter were now in my palette
Green leaves of life rather than naked boughs
A new thirst for living and hope for our future
One smile my love and our exchange of vows.
Now as I look out of our bedroom window
At the world of white stretched out below
My heart swells and love abounds
To see our children’s footprints in the snow.
