Overheard at Booth 3: Colder Than Snow

 Colder Than Snow

[second draft]

Am C

The snow has finally come


Though it’s been winter all year long

Am C G

We shall be glad when this year is done.

And here beside the bed

Where she lays her weary head

Her hands that held my babies are now clenched inside my own.

The cars that drive by the bay

Turn the snow on the street to rain

As the wind rattles the window pane

The sun, like the star

That guided Magi to the Lord

Today has a dimmer glow

And my heart is colder than the snow.
