Our Silent Night


Crystal clear sky
Moon shining high
From a window, I can see
everything we have,
everything we can be…

In a distant land, they’ve told me
A mother holds her treasure
uncomfortable from the cold
warmed by her faithful companion
wishing to give something more…

…A wanderer stops, searching for heat
Boys and girls wait for their favorite day.
People rejoice, laugh and play

A humble tree, decorated, and sparkling shows
“The most wonderful time of the year”
Mistletoe, wreathes, and cookies
decorate our home, while our Rudolph
lays beside his gingerbread abode.

In the twilight I know
-just as the snow slows-
everything we’ve been,
everything we’ve known
all the memories unfold

Our first hello,
Our first goodbye,
Our first kiss,
Our lullaby
And here we are,
Together, at last
Together as one
In our first Silent Night…
