Memoir/Poem/Family... How can I begin to short-summary the gift of this firefly?...Thank God, she was able to read it herself!- SSS

by Stephanie S. Sawyer

 

 

Brightness of the room and home,

Cheer of every heart,

Firefly for all to see

The gift God did impart.

 

Splendor of the hostess light

Beckoning all to come

Safe within the family walls

Once again, "Come Home".

 

As yet, unmatched in family cheer,

A radiance just to be

Sparkling with the joy of life

To give to you and me.

 

Firefly, you are so bright!

So heav’nly in your charms,

What grace you have to beckon all

Into your tiny arms.

 

You gaily paint the room with cheer

Bestowing smiles on each;

You deck your home with splendor full

That only you can teach.

 

We gaze in awe amidst your flare,

The firefly is our delight;

Your light will shine forevermore

E’en in the darkest night.
