"Snow Angel" as written by and Linford Detweiler....
Once upon a winter
It seems so long ago
My one and only love and I
Fell down upon the snow

And as the dusk was falling
From our gray and goose down sky
We heard the old cathedral bells
Ring out our lullaby

Snow angel, snow angel
Someday I'm gonna fly
This cold and broken heart of mine
Will one day wave goodbye

Goodbye to this cruel wicked world
And all the tears I've cried
Snow angel, snow angel
I'll meet you in the sky

The rumors of a distant war
Called my true love's name
He packed his leather suitcase
And spoke no word of blame

We walked a while together
I tried to hide my fear
He told me not to be afraid
And whispered in my ear

Snow angel, snow angel
Someday I'm gonna fly
This cold and broken heart of mine
Will one day wave goodbye

Goodbye to this cruel wicked world
And all the tears I've cried
Snow angel, snow angel
I'll meet you in the sky

They brought my love home from the war
In a cart pulled by white mules
The Christmas bells rang out that day
Oblivious as fools

And as the snow began to fall
I kissed his frozen face
They told me in his woolen coat
His last few words were placed

Snow angel, snow angel
Someday I'm gonna fly
This cold and broken heart of mine
Will one day wave goodbye

Goodbye to this cruel wicked world
And all the tears I've cried
Snow angel, snow angel
I'll meet you in the sky

    My OpinionNo comments on this gorgeous song? I'll be the first, as I sit and drown my sorrows in the song, sitting alone on Christmas Day.

    "Goodbye to this cruel wicked world
    And all the tears I've cried"

    The above lyrics speak to me and, though I know I've not experienced the loss of a loved one in a war, this song fills me with deep empathy at the pain it conveys. But there is a twinge of hope in the song for the afterlife, without the physical and emotional pains of life on Earth.

    It is that lack of pain and sorrow that I look to right now. Merry Christmas everyone.
