Fairy lights in the dark
A separate string for everyone I know
Your string has more lights
Shines longer, brighter
Each light symbolizes us together
Unseen wires connect us when we’re apart
The happy memories outshine the sad ones
Our string of joys, laughter, sorrows, tears Always strung together, lights unnumbered
