Wintersong


With the wintry weather that we have been experiencing during the past week, it seemed a good time to listen to some seasonal music. I had Wintersong on my wish list over at Amazon for quite a while, before I discovered a copy at the library and downloaded it to my iPod and I have been listening to it this week.

The title song in particular is so beautiful and full of emotion. I don't think that I fully appreciated the sense of loss until I saw the lyrics written down:

The lake is frozen over
The trees are white with snow
And all around
Reminders of you
Are everywhere I go

It's late and morning's in no hurry
But sleep won't set me free
I lie awake and try to recall
How your body felt beside me
When silence gets too hard to handle
And the night too long

And this is how I see you
In the snow on Christmas morning
Love and happiness surround you
As you throw your arms up to the sky
I keep this moment by and by

Oh I miss you now, my love
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas, my love

Sense of joy fills the air
And I daydream and I stare
Up at the tree and I see
Your star up there

And this is how I see you
In the snow on Christmas morning
Love and happiness surround you
As you throw your arms up to the sky
I keep this moment by and by

Sarah McLachlan
