star filled melody
falling through life's open arms
perfect holy light
do you search for it?
a glint of light across a dark horizon,
ice licked ponds, first star, birthday candles,
sunset, a warming fire.
you, me, all those now gone and every
person yet to be
all our shining days and darkest hours
even when we can not see
we are the light, the star, the tree.
holding you close in this season of light
and wishing the world
