Life of a country song

One little candle burns softly in the night

Calling forth the soft gently glow of its light

Flickering as though it danced to an unheard song

Moving about wildly until the candle is gone

One little star burns so brightly in the night

Calling forth the power to shine so bright

Flickering like a candle or is that wrong?

Moving about quietly floating all alone

One little thought crawls across the mind

Calling forth the words in the mind’s sight

Flickering as a passing thought not known

Moving about wildly to quietly move along

One little bird flies alone in the sky

Calling forth with a song as it flies so high

Flickering wings flap feverishly in even tone

Moving about the sky with its Lover’s Song

One little love letter to make the heart sigh

Calling for the emotions that feel so right

Flickering, fading hope while standing alone

Moving about the life of a country song

I like the life of the candle, the life it takes on, and I was a bit befuddled to the exact meaning of the middle part but the ending was very flowing up to the last line.

I do love that about the candle though, and the sort of hope in there somewhere.

Sometimes we wonder why we're not with the ones we love, yet we know they exist as we do and we can even communicate from Far Apart, but..sometimes you wonder why that person doesn't want to be with you or anyone anymore. Is it physical health they are embarrased about? I think about someone I know and how it wouldn't matter to me if they were too old that way, I'd really just like to enjoy their company like I once did. Even before we had a relationship,, we spent a lot of time together and it was a lot of fun, even though we were just friends, personality was so special, I wish we could be friends again. It would mean so much to me, and I saw a movie called "Amore" with English subtitiles the other day and I couldn't stop crying, thinking that was the kind of love I have for this person, and that I wish they would let me back into their life even if just to be friends and spend time together.
