Like snowflakes that softly fall,

so is my love for you,

landing gently around you,

enveloping you like a cloud,

a covering of white.


You will feel me, not as a coldness,

as the real snow of a real winter,

or like the breath of this world,

with its chilled words, frosty lies

but as a fire surging from your bones.


I am radiant; my light pierces darkness,

diffuses through obscurity of fog-filled nights.

I fill the air with myself, my brilliance;

I thaw you into being, into belonging,

I form you from words, my words.


I keep your heart beating,

I hold it in my hands

I am the keeper of your soul

I shield you from icy winds

This life will not bury you.


Hold fast onto me

I will not leave nor forsake you

I have good plans for you

I have made a way through the darkness

The fog does not conceal you from me


Call to me and I will answer you

I read your heart and know

I have heard you calling

Just as I have heard the cries from all generations

So also I hear you.
