I've been speaking about hope and unity a lot lately at my church, two things that have felt neglected to me in the anxiety of the times. This song came to me at the end of October, just as I was musing about the sadness of not seeing my daughters and granddaughters in New York until the pandemic is over, and, well, here it is.

I Hope We’ll Be Together
Gary Allison Furr November 1, 2020

I hope we'll be together sometime soon
Tell the same old stories round the room
We’ll hold the babies on our laps
And after lunch we'll grab a nap
Tell each other things we hope to do.

But a deadly winter storm is coming on
We'll have to stay here at the house until it's gone
First Thanksgiving day we’ve missed
But life is hard sometimes like this
We'll hunker down and call you on the phone

Don’t worry little darlings, we’re right here
Hope is greater than the darkest fear.
Friends and faith and family ties
Hold us up and make us wise.
I hope we’ll be together next year.

And if somehow we don’t make it through
I want you to remember I told you
Nothing else means more to me
Than the treasure chest of memories
of reasons in my heart why I love you.


(last chorus outro)
Face to face or in your hearts
Nothing will keep us apart
One way or another, next year.
