21st of December

Remember, remember the 21st of December
A house full of love and light
Friends, fire, and flourishing smiles
There’s a chance that, maybe, it might
Help you through the days that follow
The seemingly endless night

Remember, remember the 21st of December
It will carry you through this fight

The next day there might be the chance
That when you look down into your hands
The words that you read
Will make your heart bleed
And for a moment
You’ll forget how to dance

Remember, remember the 21st of December
Your heart full, opened wide
Stains on the carpet
The wine that we drank
Words spoken from our insides

This dance it seems new
Stumble shoe over shoe
At one thirty nine on twelve twenty two
Twenty two twenty two
Ever calling for you

Remember, remember the 21st of December
When you see it again this year
You’ll likely find
If you keep it in mind
That the space you’ve earned
Are from steps re-learned
From taking a chance
And wanting to dance

Again
