Seven Christmas Candles

 This year I only lit seven Christmas prayer candles, because I did not have room in my car for more and it was too windy outside. I lit one for me this time. I need it too. And I rewrote my "Light a Candle" Christmas song...

Light a Candle
copyright Sharon R. Poet
 
Light a candle for my daughters who never had the chance
To let their precious Hearts blossom and dance.
Light a candle for the brother we lost one summer day.
Light a candle for my mother who was also enslaved.
Light a candle for my sisters, brothers and my dad.
And for the memories that made us all so sad.
 Light a candle for the freedom that we all still need
To recover from the pain and let Love plant a seed.

Chorus: Lets let it out. Lets shed a tear.
Lets bring Love into Christmas this year.

Give us STRENGTH, God...to find our way through bullets hidden in microwaves,
and COURAGE, God...to make a STAND that saves our lives and FREEs our land.
