I fear the darkness
less, when I light a candle,
even just the one

I wish for you all a strong candle
I wish for you a path through
I wish you nimble thoughts and gifts of fire on your tongue
I wish you clever umbrellas

I wish you a secret identity if you need one
I wish you an camouflage safe house home
I wish you a name for the dark that makes it smaller when you speak it
I wish you deep meals and good sleep

and you can take this
candle, light the next one, you,
already less alone
