Be The Fire In The Snow

The mystery of the full moon envelopes me
Like the usual winter night
I stare through my window into the land of white
A solitary fire is all I see
All by itself, crackling with the wind
Struggling for life, beating the cold,
In a sea of silver, a tint of gold
Going down, and up -not willing to end
The fire has reached me through its wafted smell
It narrates the story one can perceive well
Be your own hope; shine from within
From the harsh winters, you gotta win!
Don’t give up and do not bow
Be the fire in the snow
