Because the snow falls without a sound
And covers us in a veil of white
And the cold bristles against your cheek
On this starry deep blue night.
Because you walk here next to me
And light your eyes with a laugh and smile
And every slippery slide upon the ice
Allows me to hold you for a while.
Because the trees listen to our stories
And quietly murmur while we both talk
They must feel the joy that leaps in my heart
With every step during every walk.
Because the cold wind blows its chills
And yet somehow it sparks this fire
All the silence in this wintery world
Is more sublime than any choir.
Because the snow fills up my heart
And the moonlight bathes the world in blue
There is no cold, no heat, no music
To equal the sensation of you.
