Lyrics

A Walk In The Snow
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Snow …
We took a walk in the snow
And thought about mom
Like the golden winter leaves on saplings
Frozen
Frozen in time in an alabaster forest
She hung on past her time
Ah yes, long past her time
To let go and flutter away

And we walked in the snow

She hung on, we thought,
Because the tender thread
Between mother and child
Made the parting so hard to face
And in the severance of souls
Her heart could not stand
The thought of that last embrace

But she’s gone
Off on her journey
To who knows where
Leaving us here in mid air
Leaving us here in mid air
Leaving us hanging out here in mid air
Yet still with us
On a walk in the snow
On a walk in the snow

Snow …
We took a walk in the snow
And talked about mom
As the ashen sky above hung heavy
Struggling
Struggling to find some kind of meaning
We simply watched the snow
Falling down from the sky
And let go
And sent her on her way

But we held to the thought
That she lives in us still
Beyond memory, but here
In each step, in each breath, each tear
We knew the life that is hers
Is the same life as ours
And cannot just disappear

So she’s gone
Off on her journey
To who knows where
Soaring and laughing out there
Soaring and laughing somewhere
Soaring and laughing somewhere out there
Yet still with us
On a walk in the snow
On a walk in the snow

And oh how the snow
In its soothing adagio
Rolls gently over my soul

Yes oh how the snow
In its soothing adagio
Rolls gently over my soul

We took a walk in the snow
A walk in the snow
And thought about mom
Mom
