The Candle (poem)

Updated on July 13, 2013

Now that the candle has almost gone out

Is there some hope behind this empty doubt

To tell my dreams just what it was about

Which now welcomes tears to a heart devout

-

Remember the days when clouds drifted by

From troublesome rain warm hugs kept us dry

And all which we knew on love would rely

As each endless moment kisses apply

-

Our lights toward tomorrow never went out

There wasn’t a tear concern couldn’t dry

A haven on which our Joy could rely

A picture a thought of a love devout

-

What caused those people to join by and by

Was there a heartbeat which started a doubt

What sadness arranged this dark turn-about

Was there some need which I couldn’t apply

-

So here I sit with these echoes devout

Lost in memories which tear me about

While somewhere out there she faces her doubt

Now that the candle has almost gone out

Music only

      I can see the shadows of love in this. Love the title and the words that play into the metaphor of light.

      Very hauntingly beautiful work here, Mh! I have been inspired by a song myself in writing. Love the song very much, and I have never heard it before, so thank you.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      I cannot really comment on this but I do accept the concept of the candle going out one day. Great reflection. Great poem.
