Wintersong

Lake is frozen over
Trees are white with snow
And all around reminders of you
Are everywhere I go

It’s late and morning’s in no hurry
But sleep won’t set me free
I lie awake and try to recall
How your body felt beside me

When silence gets too hard to handle
And the night too long

And this is how I see you
In the snow on Christmas morning
Love an happiness surround you
As you throw your arms up to the sky
I keep this moment by and by

Oh, how I miss you now, my love
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas, my love

Sense of joy fills the air
And I daydream and I stare
Up at the tree and I see
You’re a star up there

And this is how I see you
In the snow on Christmas morning
Love an happiness surround you
As you throw your arms up to the sky
I keep this moment by and by

    Thank you for sharing an original holiday song with everyone. It is a classic beauty! :-) It makes me cry because it’s being without a loved one during the holidays. Many can relate to this. Very bittersweet, but music is healing. Thank you for your music! :-)

    Wow….How funny that this blog is so long. This song has touched so many people. I lost my mother on Dec.17, 2007. She had a long and painful death, but walked through it with courage, grace and dignity. She was only 78. And like so many others, I feel the lyrics were written specifically for this tough time in my life and the life of my family. I played this song in my car so many times after my mother passed away, I couldn’t even begin to say ho deeply it touched me, and that I still weep when I hear it – but it’s more of a reflective and joyful cry. The sombreness has subsided. I am always apt to look up at the stars on a winter night and remember my mother – because of “Wintersong”. Thank you.

    Sarah, This song sounded like it was written for my mother when I came across it on UTUBE. My mother died of cancer also, on Christmas day 2009. All of our family was around her when she took her final breath. I think it was a blessing that my mother passed on Christmas day. As that would of been one day the whole family would of been together. My mother gave us a gift as I believe someone would have been so hurt not to have been with her in the end. I’d like to think we helped her not move on to her next life. We gave good gifts to each other, the best kind…LOVE. Thank you for writing a song to honor your mother. I’m sure she heard it from where she is. God Bless you and keep writing from the heart. (I’m trying to add picture hope it works)

  9. Sarah, Your music and your voice is and always has been so enchanting to me. This song as most your songs do touches soul.
    I have been alone for many years and have often dreamed of someone to share my life with. I have tried to find this person in the past, but eventually stopped looking. Despite this I still dream. This song reminds me of that beautify lady standing in the snow by a Christmas lit tree in the country. She’s bundled in warn cloths and as I walk up to her somehow I know her. I known she that special person I have hoped, waited and even longed for all my life to share it with. However; as she turns to look at me, as I draw closer to her, her face is blank as if it was blurred out in a movie. Its then I realize that she is still, but a dream and a hope and I am still alone.
    Sorry Sarah, but you asked. I pray you will continue to touch the souls of all people all over the world the way you seem to do for me every time I hear your voice.
    All my best wishes during this Holiday season!

  12. My fiancé passed away on July 25th. I was putting my tree up a few weeks ago dreading pulling the tree out of the box. My fiancé had bought it for me and was the last person to put it away last Christmas. A good friend helped me with my decorating. After she left, I just sat staring at the tree listening to Pandora. This song came on and I had never heard it before. I couldn’t stop crying because the lyrics were so beautiful. I have played it everyday since then. I hang on to the words “love and happiness surround you” as I think of the man who made me feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.

  13. This song is so beautiful and sad for me. My cousin passed away 2 years ago in her sleep. We were best friends…inseparable..and even though she had Treachers Collins Syndrome……there was no explanation of her death. Her mother had passed away the Christmas before of ovarian cancer……and I had to fight Jamie to wrap lights around her front window. She refused anything “christmas” . This was one of her favorite songs from the cd I gave her . My mother called me on a Sunday night…..and said “Jamie died today or last night in her sleep”. It felt like I had been hit by a truck. I walked outside and sat on the stairs facing these leafless trees……and it started to snow . The snowflakes were huge and slow. It was strange. cold but I didn’t notice. I really think this song is what got me through……and that time in my life was again marked and lives in a Sarah song. God that’s so weird to say. Anyway…….Thank You

    Speaking as a songwriter myself, I was quick to notice the gentleness of the lyric leading to the revelation regarding a death. This has to be done very subtly for the song to work. Saying : “you’re a star up there” is perfection in the craft of song. Congratulations…Well done.

  21. This song wasn’t released yet, but it reminds me of my thoughts while deployed for Desert Shield/Desert Storm over Christmas and how much I was missing my wife and family. I was 20 years a soldier and had missed holidays before but never from that distance or that long…
    Another song stayed in my mind during that time, originally recorded (or at least who I heard it first from) by Gordon LIghtfoot: “Song for a Winter’s NIght.” I have your version and enjoy it equally as well. Thank you so much for your music…

    For me this song means a lot for I had the love of my life and then she got sick and passed away. It broke my heart. Christmas was our favorite Holiday and we would spend the day just the two of us laughing and enjoying each other. When I hear this song I always think of her and I laugh at the funny things she would do and cry because she is no longer here. So I love this song for all the memories it is my favorite Christmas song but I have to admit I listen to it all year long.

    This song helps bring my mother’s memory to me with full force. I turn this song and and can see a favorite memory that I have of her. She passed away 4 years ago and the hole she has left behind hasn’t closed. This song helps me to see her on a Thanksgiving morning when a blizzard caused roads to be closed. My parents and I were snowed in at our house and had to make an alternative Thanksgiving meal. When the weather cleared we played in the snow for hours. I close my eyes and see her smile and know how blessed I was to have her in my life. We as your fans are very blessed to have you share your gift of song with us. This is always my #1 pic of a Christmas song!

    Although I know this song refers to a sweetheart, it always makes me think of my dear dad, who has been gone now for not quite 2 years. He suffered from Parkinson’s & dementia before he passed, & so it felt like he was gone while he was physically still with us. Christmas was a time of happiness & hope in our home when I was growing up (in Southwestern Manitoba,) it holds such sweet memories. My relationship with my sweet Dad was imperfect & complicated, but this is how I see him… In the snow on Christmas morning, love & happiness surround you, you throw your hands up to the sky, I keep this moment by and by. Thank you Sarah.

However, there was also something magical about the whole thing. She was an artist and her presence reminded me to never forget my inner child. She was ever so whimsical. Winter song is how I like to remember her. She comes to me every time I hear it. Thank you for this.

  56. This song elevates me to tears every time I hear it. I’m typing this with a lump in my throat and huge teardrops in my eyes because to me this song reminds me of my Mom.

    She succumbed to cancer after fighting the battle for nearly 11 years — and she died when I was 16. I think I love this song because I love the idea of thinking of her, free from pain, dancing in the snow. And Sarah there is something about your voice, about the way you sing this, that reminds me that she would not want me to be sad and still grieve for her (though it’s been more than 30 years since she died, and I still do — you never get over losing your Mom), but that she would want me to think of her happy and free.

    Your voice is such a gift, I know our Heavenly Father used all his best stuff when He made you. xo, M

    I lost my mother to her third cancer just two months before listening this song for the first time. I can tell you honestly that it became a song that gave me comfort in a moment where no one around understood what I was feeling. Yes, it didn’t take away the tears but it made me feel less alone and some parts of it seemed to tell me my mother was beyond all the images that I had seen. It reminded me of the good times I shared with her instead of focusing in the tragedy and the way I lost her and surely it made a hard Christmas be less hard. I’ll never feel complete without her, but somehow, now everytime I listen again to this song, it reminds me the story is far from over. Her star is still shining over me, and my best offering in her honor is taking everything she gave me, and living a life worth living. Blessings Sarah, and thank you for in sharing your hardships, you make us know we are not the only ones.

    34 years we were married before he died in 2007. This song reminds me of our early years together. Living in a small 4 room home with no furnace, just 2 wood stoves. He would go out at night to cut wood in the back 60 acres the house was on. I’d put a candle in the window, cuddling with our daughters, reading Christmas stories. It sounds crude but not really . We were always happy. We were not so poor when he died, living on a lake for 15 of those years, in a much nicer house. I love this song. I listen and remember that it was always good and there was love.

The success of any song depends on the ability of the author to make people feel what you are feeling and you do that so very very well.

My parents and me had Angel and I Will Remember You played at his service. Thank you Sarah for all your beautiful music.

    It depends on the moment on your life you are living. I feel attached from my family now. I am Spanish and I feel exiled in London. I had to leave Spain because of the economic situation there. I really miss my family and although these slow songs may cause more pain , it is a relief. I will spend three weeks in Seville, the city where I live, for Christmas.

    The first time I heard this song reminded me of how much my mother-in-law missed her husband when he passed away. And as I’m writing this now, her hours are waning and she will be with him again soon.

  80. I cried when I first heard “wintersong!” It’s so stunningly beautiful and reminds me of my boyfriend who passed four years ago. That first Christmas was so painful without him. This song is a perfect way to remember the good times and know he is always here during this special time of year!

    This is my mama’s song. Christmas was her favorite time of year – she really came alive during the holidays. She passed away from cancer in early December, when all she had hoped for was one more Christmas. I think of her in her glory whenever I play this song <3

    Everytime I hear this song, I always imagine of the holidays in my town. A calm and beautiful day of winter with people gathering around with families, spending time for Christmas :)

  83. Since the time Sarah first released her Wintersong, it stops me in my tracks. The lyrics remind me of what memories of love and how I thought it was suppose to be. The way love was suppose to feel and look like play through my head like a movie. Sarah’s music is always moving for me.

    This and a A Song for a Winter’s Night. My mom’s birthday was in November. She passed away in December. Could be a sad time of year for me but these songs cause me to pause and think of her. For that I am grateful. Thanks Sarah.

    This song makes me nostalgic and takes me back to when my family was together as one…….my son, my son’s dad and I. Those were some happy moments that I wished I had frozen in time forever :( He’s gone away to another state for a year and started a new life. I love him still so much and miss him. I feel melancholic. My son and I revisit certain places to remember our happy moments as a family. Sometimes I think that one day, he might return to surprise us………this song gets to me deep

    This song came out the first Christmas since I had lost my Aunt. She had passed away earlier that year. As soon as I heard this song I thought of her and I still do every time I hear it. I miss her very much. Thank you for such a bittersweet beautiful song.

  90. I love your music, your voice resonates with something in me. I wish I could say what is in my heart and on my mind but it’s too complicated to put into words. This song reminds me of things that are not just missing in my life but never will have, that’s all…

    Keep doing what you do best….keep making the music you do and thank you….

    I’m sure this was meant for the loss of a partner but I first heard it, like many others, as my father was dying of cancer.

    I remember driving to the hospital, listening to Wintersong, and praying he didn’t die before I got there. Dad hated hospitals and he was only in one for less than 24 hours. We were all there with him at the end … he told me to stop because I was rubbing his arm … so I even got told off right at the end !!!! He also told us to look after Mum and then he was gone.

    Wintersong is the most beautiful, bittersweet composition and I too, listen to it all year round !

  98. Wow! I love this song. I lost my husband to cancer in Jan of 2009, after 35 years together. I miss him so much and Christmas is still so lonely without him. I so often lay awake and try to remember how his body felt beside me. Thank you Sarah. Your soft voice makes this song so heartwarming.

  101. I was really excited when your album “Wintersong” was released, but this song…this song instantly captured my heart as well as my sisters and our mother. My grandmother, Bonnie Lou, passed in ’07 and Christmas was her favorite holiday. No matter the season, when I listen to this song, I can see her face as though she’s still here. My mother had a star ornament with your lyric(s) engraved on it as this song means so much to her. I am continually touched that you are true to your writing by expressing pure human emotion. Although tears may fall upon my face when I listen to this song, I am thankful for your words and melody that have captured the feeling. May you continue to be blessed through all that you do. With much love, Sheena

    I love this song even though it make me sad. We lost my older brother back in 06. He was a world class distance runner and a world class coach and all round great guy. I still can’t believe hes not here among us but yet I think he is in our hearts. Sarah you sing it so beautifully like all your songs. I really wish you would stop in Topeka Ks on your next tour My dream is to get to meet you one of these days. I literally dream of that day when I’ll finally get to meet you in person. Love you sarah

    Another dear to my heart. I cry everytime I hear Wintersong. It has no season and I play it all year long. My parents passed a few weeks apart and this song speaks to my inner child. When you performed this with the Canadian Tenors it was breathtaking. The lyrics opens a gate flooded with emotions and memories. My favorite :)

  104. Hey this is kind of fun. I can play words with friends of come here and talk about some of my favorite songs. Anyway, this song makes me cry almost anytime I listen to it alone. I swear it takes me back to those Christmas times when my Dad was still around. Sarah out of all your songs, I think this one and Love Song are the two that take me to a place where I can see it and feel it right now. Just like I am there. Very Cool!
