Saving winters child

When comes the frost that sows the seed
a patterned haw, its brittle plea
its whisper, only self can hear
a secret shared with only me
And who can break your winters child
for in normality, it resides
for there is very little sign
to break the plan on deaths designs
In quiet isolation, time to brood
the winters child, alone is stood
family and friends, don't have a clue
the ache to be misunderstood
Samaritans with angel's tread
a silent reach beyond the dread
a moment to step back from the edge
leave the note unfinished yet
For there is love for a winter's child
and from life's freezing fog, unhides  
for each loss, it hurts, the ever while
listen close, to hear it thaw tactile

Who can conscript, the strength to heal
see the cracks that lie concealed
my traumas blindfold darkness feel
 help chose life, as death can't be repealed

Weigh the anchor on my heavy chains
and easy path to go, much harder to remain
 admit depression and despair is never lame
considering, its repercussions maim

Then winters child will feel a warming flame
