A Soft Snow Falls

An old friend of mine, Liz, tried out my fountain pen on a scrap of paper. She wrote, “A soft snow falls”. That’s it. Between walking the winter-swept lakeshore on my way to a visit and far-away hope, the words and music arrived. Dedicated to my witch, wise woman, and muse. You know who you are.

A soft snow falls the street light shines
fridge clicks on old compressor whines
I see you standing in my room
your beauty shines but you leave too soon

a light snow falls like your hair so fine
on my pillowed bed oh you were so kind 
a soft snow falls all is quiet now
on this Sunday night resting on my brow

Chorus:

Sit with me a while While I tell you stories
Lie with me inside the covers of my single life
Sit with me a while while I love you more
it’s been too long it’s been too long
while soft snow falls

I will keep you warm When winter winds
Threaten you with harm I'll bring you in
You come again when daybreak calls
I'll draw you in when the last snow falls

Chorus:

Sit with me a while While I tell you stories
Lie with me inside the colours of my changing life
Sit with me a while while I love you more 
it’s been too long it’s been too long
while soft snow falls

A soft snow falls footsteps slide
I walk in drifts where the wind is wide
I come to you where we see this through
When the last snow falls I'll be with you 
When the last snow falls I'll be with you
