"Men of Snow" as written by and Ingrid Michaelson....
Once I made a man all out of snow
He had the darkest eyes and a button nose
I told him all my sadness and my fear
And he just listened with a snowy ear

But when I came around the next day
My friend had gone and melted all away
I saw his eyes lying on the ground
I made a sound that was something like crying

Oh, one day you will go away from this
Oh, one day you will know we're men of snow
We melt one day

And winters come and my love, the winters go
And time stacks up in piles like winter snow
And everything you love and hold so dear
Won't really matter when we disappear

Oh, one day you will go away from this
Oh, one day you will know we're men of snow
We melt one day

Oh, one day you will go away from this
Oh, one day you will know we're men of snow
We melt, you know, we're men of snow
We melt one day

    Song MeaningJust because she acknowledges that the things you loved when you lived won't matter when you're gone doesn't make this song pessimistic. It's an acceptance of not only her death but also the smallness of her own life in the scheme of the things, so it's an acceptance of life too.
