A Candles Flame


A candle flame lights the night
Like the sun lights the day
The peacefulness of a flame
Can chase the loneliness away

A candle flame can be a light of hope
As the flickering from the flame
Can calm an excited soul
In church you can light a candle in God's name

It can burn eternal on a grave
It can help someone find their way
It can light a darkened world
It can bring hope to a new day
