Candles in the window
waiting for life to come home
the flame forever burning
like it's losing it's soul

Life is for living
not for burning alone
live every part of it
don't lose your way home

    Life is for living, and preferably not alone. Sadly, many people are, and this is something society needs to address. Very good write Dave, well expressed. (Report) Reply
