  • Darkness creeps in
    Steadily, ineffably, more each day
    Hibernation energy draws me in
    Readily, inevitably, as dreams hold sway
    Shining their light through
    The darkness of these days
    Lighting the way home...
  • Take me away on your wings
    Of freedom, carry me there
    To breathe, and smell, and hear
    The stories once again
    The ones you always told
    Each time like the first
  • Childlike I sit, to hear and
    Sense the wonder of them...
    Just one more, and then
    I'll darkness
    Lightened, once again...
