# # FLICKER (for Meggie Gultiano)

FLICKER (for Meggie Gultiano)

A flicker of hope
And darknesss has lost
Crawling back into its shadows

A flickering fire
Once more ignites
My faith for a promised tomorrow

A flickering light
A flickering fire
A flickering candle I borrowed

I give it to you
Please pass it along
It will last you well past your sorrow

Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
