My Night Candle Poem by Kingsley Egbukole

My Night Candle



Your illumination,
gave the night a new meaning
and the boat of life
effortlessly sail smoothly
in timeless care
Life was easy
Life was love
And love was life

Now gone,
not even the receding tail rays i sight,
the dark threatens suffocation
in a helpless sinking ship

Worst still,
other candles are damp
and give not the warming heat
to save my ship from freeze

Life then became,
cold and rough
hate and regret
at the last flicker
of my night candle
