Light The Candle - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

Light the candle for love
Ignite the wick, melt the wax
With every drip that falls
Fill the empty cup of love

Light the candle of love
Let it slowly burn to the mind
Just as it soaks the heart with joy
Until a yearning soul find its melt

Dare not let the flicker die
Let it breed hope in the dark
To the heart that silently breaks
To the spirit that limps

Light it though it rains at times
Even in the midst of blowing winds
Though it may be too dark at times
Light it regardless of the tides

Light the candle of love
For the world that lacks time
Light and burn all resistance
For the lovers who lost faith in their love

It matters not the place
It cares not for the state
Be it in good or bad times
Light the candle with love
