Candle Box

on December 30, 2011

In spirit of the new year….

Candle Box:

Each one lit for a single belief

For trust in life and hope in peace

For God and Heaven, eternal rest

For silver linings and a simple wish

Each one lit for a single song

For a will to fight, and change what’s wrong

For relief of victims in a hurricane

For cheers sung loud at a football game

We’ve all got a candle box

Some candles melted, some forgot

Some lights burnt out, some ablaze

Some candles broken, some are safe

Light a candle for the fallen

Strike a match, pursue your calling

Have no fear in open hands

May this year be filled with candle stands

    Often times, I feel as though I, myself, am a candle, lit at both ends, burning much too quickly to withstand the wind.

    Such a compassionate and thought provoking write.
