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
