Arise

winter-917104_1920

Arise.

In the stillness,

The frost settling

On an early morning;

Awake, my soul

Why do you sleep?

Like a mother

Separated from her child,

My fingers tremble

My heart grows cold,

And I seek to end

This deepening slumber;

My soul, where did you go?

These blackened winter days

Are when I need you;

But I stand numb –

My feeling gone,

As I beg my soul

To come back home.
