Passionately take one big step back
As with your love you move forward
Let the Light of Christ keep you both on track
Being genuine and straightforward

Rub noses and let your eyes dance
With this Light that shines inside
Feel the joy of heaven’s expanse
Let peace within you reside

Lies a wondrous brain
It commands and steers
All paths to gain

A memory bank
Of all that lies about
To process and think

Frozen side by side
Starving in the snow
With their hope still aglow

The rescue was like a dream
Through the snow they saw the team
Now fed they must walk on
To Zion it would not be long

The man leading the hand cart company
had been in the Battalion and
had seen the awful remains

Just like the moon
Promises phase
From fullness of bloom
To a need to be remade

German proverb which says, “Promises are like the full moon. If they are not kept at once, they diminish day by day”

You, my eternal friend
For my heart won’t let
