The Candle


If I was one thing, I'd be a candle
Burning just to light your way
Unconditional brightness abundant in your path
Whichever route you take

I would light your path to avoid any struggles
I'd help to keep you from stumbling over
moving the obstacles in your path opening all the doors.
I will light your way and pray your life is easier,

My light will shine oh so brightly
Even in the strongest winds, not even a flicker.
My light is your focus shining brightly in the dullest of days
The faith I have in you keeps the flame burning

One day you may leave me behind
You may no longer need my light to shine.
If that day comes, go on your way
And I will hope to see you again one day.

If one day, I don't appear,
Do not worry, do not fear
I may be gone, but in your heart
The light I gave you did not depart.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
