Lighting A Memorial Candle For One Of The Six Million
Even if I could light six million lights
I could not rekindle your light
And your’s was only one
Not one in a million
But one of six million
Snuffed out, blown out, crushed out
“Let there be light” and the world was full of light
And your light brought light to your world
Until the darkness came
And put out all the lights.
So now I stand
Match in hand
To light a light
Not your light for you
But your light for me
To brighten my world
