    Goddess’s Promise (©️ Lorelei Greenwood 2003)
    When Darkness falls and the world turns to shadow,
    Be not afraid of the dark,
    For I am with you, calming, surround you,
    In the dark, there’s the spark of my love.
    Yuletide Song (Lyrics ©️ Lorelei Greenwood 1996, original music as a companion piece to "Silent Night" by an unknown author) Here in the darkness, balanced with light,
    I tremble in shadows this cold winter's night.
    Following the stars so breathless, shining
    Here among the trees in the wildwood
    Lightly dreaming of flowered fields —
    Springtime and warmth will be coming soon.

    Full Moon is rising there in the East
    To shine upon tables of Yuletidings feast.
    Scattered on the wind is someone singing,
    Dancing 'round the fire in the Moonlight,
    Chanting praises to Holly Kings,
    Laughter and loving do welcome me.
    Born out of darkness, fountain of light.
    The Lady sings welcome her new Son tonight.
    Spiralling of life, the endless circle
    Coming 'round again, open freely!
    All as one on this blessed eve
    Praise we the Light of the Morning Sun!Sacred Pleasure(Shawna Carroll)

    Where there's fear there is power,
    Passion is the healer,
    Desire cracks open the gate,
    If you're ready, it'll take you through.
    But, nothing lasts forever,
    Time is the destroyer.
    The wheel turns again and again,
    Watch out, it'll take you through.
    But, nothing dies forever,
    Nature is the renewer.
    The wheel turns again and again,
    If you're ready it'll take you through.
