  • I talked with a stranger - so sad and forlorn
    His garments were sackcloth - all tattered and torn
    He told me a story - of sorrow and woe
    His heart went to heaven - at the first fall of snow

    He spoke of his angel - a dear, baby girl
    He loved every footstep - he loved every curl
    But she went to heaven - just one year ago
    The angels came for her - at the first fall of snow

    He still had the dolly - that she used to love
    He held and caressed it - and gazed up above
    He whispered my baby - You're waiting, I know
    I'll bring you, your dolly - at the first fall of snow

    And there as I listened - my eyes filled with tears
    I knew she was part of - his happier years
    His frail body trembled - he spoke soft and low
    I'll be with my baby - at the first fall of snow

    I patted his shoulder - my feelings to hide
    He couldn't know - I was crying inside
    He smiled as we parted - 'cause he didn't know
    That we lost our baby - at the first fall of snow
