Under Cold Stars

19 Sleeps till Christmas

As I was on my evening walk
The snow lay roundabout
Soft like velvet
So delicate
An eiderdown whiteout

Passing by the village churchyard
I saw there all alone
A girl so young
Forlorn, she sung
Freezing cold to the bone

I approached with care, said hello
She looked at me and smiled
Hiding her scars
Under cold stars
This innocent young child

And as she turned to walk away
Wished me Merry Christmas
Then by surprise
Before my eyes
Vanished in nights darkness
