your hand

you took my hand
in the frozen forest
with a warm and steady grip

the ground
     slipped
and
   slid
but I didn’t fall

with breaths of icy air
we stumbled on together
our fingers entwined

the forest fell away
  behind us
the hillside opened up
    before us

and onwards we stepped
into the light
and home
