Around the holidays, naturally, I think of those I have lost. I think others may have the same melancholy, and I hope this speaks to them. To view this on youtube:


One more string of lights and we will be able
To keep our cold, dark street alight
While we gather round to come to the table
Where we miss you so, tonight

You cannot be far from where we are
So we wait for your step at the door
And the world, tonight, so silent, so white
Brother please, brother please, come home

This is the time we all come together
And we try to understand
All of the good things we give to each other:
All our stories, all our plans


We keep our hearts open, to gather you in, to gather you in
We hold our hearts open, as wide as we can, to gather you in, to gather you in

I know the world will keep pushing forward
And the days will tumble on
But I have this thought that I will hold onto
We could meet again, we could meet again
