Dogwood Daughter: THE LISTENING ROOM

Footprints in the Snow

(Dogwood Daughter)
November 4, 2012

Sometimes when I can't sleep

I put on my boots and coat

And walk out in the night

Making footprints in the snow

 

I walk beneath the stars

With my memories and ghosts

And remember names and faces

Of so many gentle souls

Who used to walk beside me

Making footprints in the snow

 

Making footprints in the snow

I think about my life

All the people that I've loved

But let go and said goodbye

My mother and my father

She was pretty, he worked hard

And the friends from my old neighborhood

I can see their streets and yards

And the boy who taught me how to love

When I was just a girl

All the people who left footprints

In my life and in this world

 

Repeat first two stanzas

 

I wish that they were with me

Making footprints in the snow (x fade)
