    come sit in the dark with me
    and look at that moon that
    is so at home in the night
    let us reach deep into the
    pockets of our souls for
    scraps of hope and wonder

    come look up at the firefly
    stars flinging their light
    lay back on the blanket of
    dead leaves and sleeping soil
    would that we had a ladder to
    make a consolation of ourselves

    come sing our favorite song
    softly into this silent night that
    welcomes the first day of winter
    the one about being together
    no matter what—yes — that one
    come sit in the dark with me
