LIGHTS OF LOVE
Jacqueline Brown, Peace Valley TCF, New Britain, Pa.
Can you see our candles burning in the night?
Lights of love we send you –- rays of purest white.
Children we remember -– though missing from our sight
In honor and remembrance –- we light candles in the night.
All across the big blue marble – spinning out in space
Can you see the candles burning — from this human place?
Oh, angels gone before us –- who taught us perfect love
This night the world lights candles –- that you may see them from above.
Tonight the globe is lit by love –- of those who know great sorrow,
But as we remember our yesterdays –- let’s light one candle for tomorrow.
We will not forget, –- and every year in deep December
On Earth we will light candles –- as………………………….. we remember.
