There are a thousand (and one) points of light
on these December silent nights
as candles glow for Hanukkah
remembering the past.
These stars look down on we who pray
to guide us to a better way
as we seek peace and strive to live
more kind and gentle lives.
The one we knew as "41"
has left his mark (his mission done).
But in his wake a flame now burns
to light a forward path.
A thousand points of light (plus one)
bear witness to what has been done
to make our world a better place.
A world that longs for peace.
