Storm knocked out the power, the candles are now lit
Ice cream is going to melt, so let's make a banana split 
Bring out the board games, time to use our skills and wit
Conversations are much better, don't you agree a little bit
Let's snuggle to keep warm come over here with me and sit
Making memories by candlelight is the best we must admit.
