Fire sparks a candle bright

Small it shines against the night

Cheerfully dancing in sweet innocence

Leaving it completely exposed and defenseless

Soon wind and rain pressure it to fade

Causing it to flicker, cold and afraid

Ashes drop from the shortening wick

Hot wax pools and falls thick

Darkness surrounds the little white light

Ready to swallow it into the night
