Lifes Candle

Life is like a candle
it will burn out someday,
i told you i loved you
but it didn't work out my way.

now my life is like the candle
slowly burning down,
you use to be around me
everytime i turned around.

now you are gone
and stuck all on her,
i'm like a candle in the dark
already burned.

so my candle is now
alone in the dark,
wishing we never
had to split apart.

    nice poem of a burning candle. A truism of life that we must accept.
    thanks and best wishes.
