At the First Fall of Snow
I talked with a stranger - so sad and forlorn His garments were sackcloth - all tattered and torn He told me a story - of sorrow and woe His heart went to heaven - at the first fall of snow He spoke of his angel - a dear, baby girl He loved every footstep - he loved every curl But she went to heaven - just one year ago The angels came for her - at the first fall of snow He still had the dolly - that she used to love He held and caressed it - and gazed up above He whispered my baby - You're waiting, I know I'll bring you, your dolly - at the first fall of snow And there as I listened - my eyes filled with tears I knew she was part of - his happier years His frail body trembled - he spoke soft and low I'll be with my baby - at the first fall of snow I patted his shoulder - my feelings to hide He couldn't know - I was crying inside He smiled as we parted - 'cause he didn't know That we lost our baby - at the first fall of snow
