The lamp is burning low upon my table top

Holiday decor

The lamp is burning low upon my table top
The snow is softly falling
The air is still within the silence of my room
I hear your voice softly calling.

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two

I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this winter's night with you.

SONG FOR A WINTER'S NIGHT
Music and lyrics by Gordon Lightfoot
Sung by Sarah McLachlan

Beautiful! I just ordered a book full of 1000 song lyrics because I love the poetry in them. Again, we are so much alike. We need to meet up someday!

I love the feathers too. Just bought them this week at an After-Christmas sale, 50% off at my favorite shop nearby.

And this song, although sad, is so beautiful. Thanks, all.
