Daisies In December


Summer fades into winter

But is never truly gone:

Because when I want to visit you

I can find you inside songs.

I once thought strength came from fighting

But what I had known was all wrong.

You taught us the lesson-

To be soft is to be strong.

Strength is carrying others

When hearts are heavy, the road long.

It’s making them realise

That theyre where they belong.

The days are darker now.

But when the sky is an ember

I will always remember

You as daisies in December.
