Jasper, Alabama U.S.A.
A Winter Night Remembered
I watched as winter came upon us,
and the last rose petal fell.
The harsh memories still haunt me
of that night, a never ending hell.
I tried to escape the madness,
in the winter winds, so cold.
But I found myself near freezing,
with memories I'll always hold.
Screams echoed through the icy trees
of how I vowed to never let go.
You swore to me that your love was true
and you would let everyone know.
I must have stood in the rain for hours,
until it started to slowly freeze.
My body was now entirely numb,
shivering with every cooling breeze.
You found my body that night,
passed out and half way froze.
How I survived that night is a
miracle that nobody knows.
But I believe I know the reason
of just why I didn't die.
Simply because I never had
the chance to tell you good-bye.
