I Leave a Candle Burning

I leave a candle burning in the window
to guide you safely home each night.
I clear a path for you to find your way,
and each night I keep watch and hold hope.

I leave a candle burning at the foot of the stair
and I hope you'll arrive before dawn.
Each day I cry in the silence at my loss -
In the shadows I'm still all alone.

I keep a candle burning in the window
and pray one night that you'll return.
I watch, and I hope in the silence of night
as I listen for your footstep on the stair.

A candle burns silently in my heart
and I wait for the shadows to disappear.
I long for the sight of you walking home
So that dawn will once more re-appear.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
