Never A Burned-out Candle

Thinking now of you

In this instance

Our love holds no bounds

But this distance

I plead with time

For when I wake

Closer to you

My journey will take


I couldn't imagine

This deepest passion

Or how far apart we'd be


It's unforseen

But in between

Your heart still reaches me


Forever to you

I will fight

With nothing

I'd still have the might

If ever love's cup has a handle

You are never a burned-out candle

A love poem Christopher. I too like the love's cup handle expression.

If you will allow me to make a suggestion... if you hit the enter key after your last line that will stop it from running into the 'ads by google ' they always seem to get in the way don't they
