Christmas Angel

I grab at air and ice, swallow water
swirling cold, numb, hopeless
sink a third time
promise God to change

I wake on shore in revival tears
safe but alone, white face, lips blue,
look for who caught me
find only crushed shells

How is it you can save my life
and disappear or was it
your third time too
No strength, too wounded

In dreams I dive under the ice,
breathe life, bring you home,
we rise, rock and dance
melt snow
