slippers in the snow lyrics – tiles

lay your head to rest
the mountain climbed
the summit reached
a reel of moments plays on rewind
quiet burden endured
how odd this sense of welcoming
grateful for release

“because i could not stop for death,
he kindly stopped for me;
the carriage held but just ourselves
and immortality”-emily d*ckinson

hurdle through the night no light
no time to rest or stop on this hasty flight
the day arrives
wearing slippers in the snow
i see the footprints leading to home

pages yellow & dry
a calendar suspending time
memories kindling a cherished spell
as pain dissolves in a trail of tears
