If You But One Candle, Light - Poem by Mark Heathcote

If you but one candle, light, in my heart.
Will I feel its warmth; see it light the dark
Will its dainty flame flicker, dance and dart
Will my heart soar and sing like a meadowlark?
If you but one candle, light, in this heart
Will I know with you my souls disembark?
Will its wax and wane be my counterpart?
Will each kiss shared be our next high tide mark?
If you but one candle, light, in my heart
Will the difference I feel electroshock…
Will I know your passion non in truth apart?
Will we ignite skies and interlock?
If you but one candle, light, in this heart
Will I be captivated from the start?
