Winter Solstice Song

I wish you more
Of whatever lights your darkness;

Fire by night, a friend’s embrace,

A lover’s touch, the wisdom of the past,
Whatever bears you up through life’s endeavor
And whispers to your heart that winter
Will not last forever.

I wish you more
Of whatever warms your winter,
Wine and tea and coffee,
Song and dance and sweet waiting silence,
Whatever ties to life time cannot sever
That call to your mind that darkness
Cannot last forever.

As winter closes,
Night devours your days,
Join me and those who light
The candles, logs, or trees that fire our faith
That life is more than bending to the weather,
And sing, proclaiming in the winter darkness
That darkness will not last forever.
