On that freezing night

Were your thoughts only on

What you considered your mission

Did you even feel the cold

Had each day been a test

A test to see how much you could take

Had your test ended that day

What was it that made it too much

Did you pause

Stop & wait as you thought

Thinking about all those who'd miss you

Or did you do it before even you could stop yourself

Had each day been a test

A test to see how much you could take

Had your test ended that day

What was it that made it too much

As the burn set in

Could you even feel the cold

Was it then in that instant

That you began to realize all you'd miss
