She stared out the window,
Though she didn’t really know
why she was watching
For footprints in the snow.

Expectation filled her;
She was apprehensive too,
Studying the ground
For footprints old or new.

There was just a blanket
As far as the eye could see,
Stretching smooth and white;
Where could her darling be?

Then she thought she saw him,
But he seemed quite far away,
It was hard to tell;
She wished that it were day.

She turned from the window
Because she was trembling so;
Then she heard the source
Of footprints in the snow.

He came to her at last;
Such warmth and joy filled her heart;
Held there in his arms,
She knew they’d never part.
