We keep them bright

Held fast

Against sudden, intrusive


Your own star

To give you guidance

Standing out

In the dark nights

A gentle beacon

A reminder

Home waits

And welcomes you

No matter how far

The travels

Or how weary

The outcome

You are certain

Of the warmth

Of welcome

Within the sanctuary

That tends its fires

To guide your return – Caroline A. Slee
