In the distance the sky hazy with an ever growing fog
Two people hand in hand…on a path for far too long
The snow is falling faster..every tree now looks the same
As they start to grow much weaker..their love they do proclaim

Some trees have now fallen..blocking the path that they should take
Neither one will say it…but they’ve made a big mistake
Outdoors for hours, the cold is taking its toll
Hallucinations in their minds…despair in their souls

They’ve been walking all day, it seems the forest just wont end
Their bodies are burning..frostbite is setting in
A much needed day together, that might be their last
Hoping about a future, thinking of the past

The sun has now set, not a star in the sky
No moon to be seen for comfort, she softly begins to cry
Now too cold and hungry, she makes her way to sit down
While her husband begs and pleads with her
“Please get off the ground”?
The woman looks up and shakes her head no
Her husband with streaming tears, kneels down very low
The woman says to her love with a slight smile on her face
“Sit down,rest,..and hold me…I do not think we are leaving this place.”
A few minutes later silence filled the air
That was the tearful end of this old,loving pair

When the storm was over, and their bodies were finally found
They were entertwined under two trees..100 yards from familiar ground
They were still holding hands, there was still love to show
Their bodies were facing the front porch of their mountain home
Where beautiful brass lanterns would light up their nest with peaceful golden glows…
