In my dream

My mother’s voice sings to me

Echoing back from the trees

Bringing to mind a time

When that voice was everything.

Now the trees sing it back to me

In their manifold harmony

They reach out to comfort me

And though I slide on the ice

I know I will not fall

I feel no fear.

The song is uplifting me

The Earth supports me

With powerful chords

While the melody soars.

I am a child again

I play in the snow

I know no fear

I am just here

And all I hear
