White Ash

Ding Dong Ding Dong
The bells from the church strike.
Midnight is upon the earth once more.
Everything is peaceful and quiet.
Nothing is stirring,
Or rattling
As the snow falls gently kissing the earth.

Light from the lamp posts,
Glow like the stars in the clear sky.
Row by row they go on and on,
Into the horizon.

The snow covers the earth like a blanket.
With its imprints of the past.
Indented on the sidewalk,
Scattering in every direction.

Peace rings in the silence.
Blood has been cleaned,
As white as snow.
The war has ended.
And the white ash falls from the sky,
As we mourn and sleep in silence.

Let it snow.
Let it snow.
Like a lullaby.
