As the daylight fades and the shadows become night,
We come together to shine a small light.
A light that alone, seem insignificant and small.
But shining together represents, not one, but all.
When grief and darkness take hold of what we hold dear,
Our joined lights shine brighter and our memories become more clear.
Memories that honor those we cherish.
Special memories that will never perish.
While we are hurt and struck with words left unspoken,
We are like stained glass - the light only getting in when we are broken.
The light reflects off of our broken pieces,
And gives illumination as our grief releases.
Shine on, shine on, tiny flickering light.
Shine for love, remembrance and honor... and shine bright.
