In Winter When

When all around the world is white
and snowfall caps the trees
in heavy coats the branches bow
beneath an arctic freeze

breezes whisper throught the woods
the frozen earth lies still
chilled to the bone and silent
caught fast by nature's will

yet like the water in a brook
unfazed by winter's touch
my heart is flowing clear and free
despite the icy hush

on starry nights came peaceful bliss
to heal all pain is past
I'm warm within his soul at home
safe to love at last
