Pillars of Hope













Two white candles side by side
pillars of hope in days to come
soft dancing light, flames to guide
hearts beating to a distant drum

in the stillness of a winter's night
snowy blanket, covering darkness
silver canopy stars twinkling bright
master healer, filled with kindness

opening gateways, tender compassion
will you travel the road to inner peace
will you let love fill you with passion
longing for pain & suffering to cease

tis the season of faith, hope and love
seeking that bright light from above
