A song about the beauty of November. The closing of the year, reckoning of all that is gone by and will never return. The longing for summers past but the inevitable forward momentum of life and the beauty of letting go and embracing the uncertainty of winter.



Curtains fall in November 
cover all that lies behind.
Every day like fading embers
growing darker than the last.
Clouds a thousand shades of memories,
And the sun is fading fast.

Snow drifts down in November
a quiet blanket on my mind
Summer begs me to remember.
Tie me tighter to the mast.
Light a candle in November
And the light is fading fast.

There’s a force in the winter calm,
just as strong and wild as any storm.
There’s a glow in the darkness,
that keeps a roaming soul safe and warm.

Tear down my shroud of fear.
Make it all disappear.
