“Fairy Lights” by Howard Pell

Fairy Lights

Fairy lights in the dark

A separate string for everyone I know

Your string has more lights

Shines longer, brighter

Each light symbolizes us together

Unseen wires connect us when we’re apart

The happy memories outshine the sad ones

Our string of joys, laughter, sorrows, tears Always strung together, lights unnumbered
