The ice of winter

Cold as stone

As I am

So all alone

I freeze myself

Inside this prison

And realize

The sun has risen

The radiance

So warm and dear

Now melts the ice

That I do fear

The morning's light

Brilliant as gold

Takes my loneliness,

Makes warm from cold

I blink my eyes

Now waking slow

From the prison

I grew to know

The more I knew

The more I hated

The icy chamber,

And so I waited

For the sunlight

To arrive

And for the sunlight

To bring me to life.

Now free from cold

And loneliness gone

I cast the ice away

And now move on.
