Give a Little Light

May you give a little light, share a little love, have hope and bring hope to those around you; may you find a star and be a star when times are dark and share your sun’s warmth and light when all around you is bright.

A Star to Follow, Margaret Mair, original art

In this wintry season
Days are short
And nights are long
And stars linger
Across the sky’s
Dark sweep,
Fragile as dreams,
Far away as wishes,
Fitful as memories,
Fantastic as gifts
Long hoped for
But never expected.
Our lifted eyes
Are captured
By their twinkling beauty
Reaching out to us
Across eons of time
And an infinity
Of space.
So many eyes,
So many wishes,
So many dreams
Held up toward them,
So much hope
In prayers raised
To the heavens
They call home,
Each and all
Bringing us together
Even if only
Up there
So very far away
From these places
We call home.
