a candle for the children [ finale]

           a Candle for the Children

And so i sit and stare out of my window
i see the cold rain glistening on the trees;
as the dim light of December is descending
i feel the Christmas lights glow all around me.


             A Candle for the Children
                     [ a song by K.Harrington]

this Christmas light a candle for the children
and put a few more angels on the tree.
this Christmas say a prayer for people willing
to protect innocent lives in this land of the free.

it seems like long ago and early one morning
i heard my boys just breathing in their beds.
then i stood on a porch staring at a picture
of a fireman with a little girl among the dead.
now as i pour my self another coffee
i think that i might go out for a walk
right now i'm gonna turn off this damn t.v.
i can not bear to hear the news people talk.

[1st verse is chorus]
