Before the river sleeps under ice blanket

The night snow makes me go back
to a time when we were together
a time that has never grown old
do you know your love
helped me grow and know
everything that I now know
it’s your humbleness and warmth
that helped me survive
through the hardest and difficult times
your prayers and nothing else than your prayers
have helped me continue walking
towards my destination and making my dreams a reality
so in this cold night I wish to be with you again
in your warm arms that have always been home to my soul
I wish we can be together again
Before the river sleeps under the ice blanket
before every road is covered with snow
oh reply to me if you hear me

Still can recall the warmth in your voice
as you read those childhood tales to me
to which I fell comfortably asleep
knowing about the protective and guiding angel
that God gifted me
forgetting about any and every worry
knowing that you are always here to guard off
and wipe away my every pain, every agony
through every thick and thin
through every ebb and flow
so much changed except you
who has stayed the same as
the first day I ever felt you
the very first time you held me and I smiled
so in this cold night I wish to be with you again
in your warm arms that have always been home to my soul
I wish we can be together again
Before the river sleeps under the ice blanket
before every road is covered with snow
oh reply to me if you hear me
