Welcome strangers

Wishing All and Every soul a Blessed Samhain.
May each of us find our hearts true home.
May a light shine ever to guide us as we travel life's bumpy roads.
And May we return from our travels wiser than we left.

A Stranger at the Door

Candles glowing in the windows,
Guiding home the wandering souls.
Flames together, softly dancing,
Seen through eyes replaced by holes.

Curling smoke, like fingers beckon,
Pointing out the entrance near.
If you knock will some one listen?
Will the people gathered hear?

Softly now, don't want to startle
Happy families having fun,
Think they might have heard your footsteps,
Call to you..."It's ok...come!"

"We've set a place for you to join us.
Welcome on this darkest night!
Join us as we celebrate,
Help us learn to do things right."

"Tonight we celebrate with Love.
Our Harvest rich we gladly share.
We wish all lost souls Hope and Comfort,
Welcome arms and hearts that care."

Quietly you walk amongst them,
Warmed by smiles and prayers serene.
Finding Love in Life so vibrant,
Feeling that, at last, your seen.

Now as night fades into morning,
Time again to leave for home.
Not knowing where your people are now,
Existing only as you roam.

But once a year you're filled with Hope.
Next time you'll make it there for sure...
Next time, you'll be the long lost love...
and not The Stranger at the Door.
