Candle Heart

Candlewick burning,
Spluttering, slowly dying;
Light is worth the pain.

Heart burning fiercely,
Love, life, passion all aglow.
Embers will remain.

Travel with your light
To pierce the heart of darkness —
Future’s paths made plain.

Burn bright to the end
For who knows after you’re gone
What others will gain?
