I open my eyes once again
The falling snow has returned
Exhaling, cold breath in the air
Winter has again befallen us

The trees weep and hang their limbs
Branches heavy 'neath the snow
Sheets of ice cover the land

The night has fallen
I walk through this graveyard of trees
Devoid of life
There is only falling snow

Decrepit faces
Smiling through the frozen cracks
Devoid of life
When will there be more than snow

Footprints in the falling snow
Of those who left me long ago

Where have I been after all this time
A vagabond under the deliquescent moon
I have seen only the fading footprints
Covered by the constant falling snow

Snow blinding and twisting my sight
Showing me what I have lost
And I saw my steadfast fading elation
I have nowhere to go

Slipping through the cracks
All that I desire
When will I return

My skin is pale
My eyes set on the horizon
Drifting.. slowly through the snow
My heart is cold
Going where I do not know
We have a long way to go..
