Skating on the ice
Doing pirouettes
Upon the frozen
Mirror in my heart

The sadness and the grief
Are buried still within
Yet ice inside in my heart
Now glistens in the sun

Memories arise
While dancing in the light
The pain begins to yield
Hope rises from within

Spinning on the ice
That shimmers in the sun
Joyous pirouetting
Hope dances in my soul
