welcome mist, comes home again
As I lay out my table just for them.
With apples then pumpkins and honey mead wine
Tonight with my lost ones I will dine.
I flame a black candle so you will see,
the light through my window, "come home to
Although you are gone the veil is thin,
Now let the celebration begin!
We shall dance, we shall sing under a Samhain
For tonight not a tear for you will I cry.
For you are with me, in my circle of light,
and we will hold each other so very tight.
our feet are tired, when the food has gone,
the candles burnt out for
it is dawn.
I shall kiss you goodbye, then take
I shall guide you back to the Summerland.
