Come Sit By the Fire
[This great image is from google. Wow.]
Come sit by the fire, beloved ones.
I'll bring in the tea.
Tell me how things are for you, today,
and I will listen to you,
We have walked a long journey together,
times we didn't even know we were traveling.
Now we circle back, we head towards home,
wherever it happens to be this particular year.
Time, now, becomes so dear.
A quick look back at all of the hard times, and the good,
all the losses, from which, so painfully, we grew.
A longer look ahead, now time is short;
choosing how to spend what's left
is more important
than we ever knew.
Come sit by my cosy fire.
We will laugh a lot,
and we will share good cheer.
We shall cherish the moments,
all too few,
we have together.
I will be missing you
even while you're
