Winter is giving way to spring
Just as the rosy light of dawn arrives
To burn away the remnants of the night
So too is your smile a brilliant sunrise
That guides me from the darkness to the light.

Your laughter like the chorus of the birds
That sing their joyous callings in your praise.
But I myself am dumb - I have no words
My mind too full of thoughts of brighter days.

How glad you must be to have left behind
The hardship that you must endure below
During the half-year that you spend confined.
My love, how did I ever let you go?

Although before long winter shall arrive
For now, Daughter, you’ve brought my world alive.
