My Candle Burns For You

Updated on November 4, 2012

A Poem for the Forgotten

You don't know me,

But I think about you often.

I don't know your name;

I don't know what you look like;

I do know that you are alone;

I know that deep down you are frightened;

You are imprisoned.

By whom or what, I do not know.

I just want you to know that I think of you often.

I just want you to know that at night I say a prayer

That one day you will know freedom

That one day you will know what it means to love

That one day you will feel the sun on your face.

Until that day comes, my friend,

Know that my candle burns for you.
