To A Man Found Frozen in Snow

This was the man who fell off the ends of your world.
Though he was found in sleepy sight
In silver lines between black and white,
His moments of silent desperation glistened
When the chance of life entered the equation.
Thus, falling back to hope
Yet still denied
He left to wonder
How silently alone
Go I.
