Beneath this desolation,
Beneath this absence of hope,
When all is still
And only coldness surrounds,
Something breathes -

The promise of a new Earth
Upon the death of the old.

Beneath this hopeless winterscape
Sleeps that promise.

Have I - in my torture -
missed something so beautiful?

Let me stand before you
As we unify our suffering.
And in this desolation,
We can find something beyond hope.

For when all is still,
I can hear the breathing
Of a sleeping promise
I shall make my own.
A new, better world is upon us,
Even now.
