the candle

Little candle burn so bright holding back the starry night

But if I were to blow you out

Would I have cause to scream and shout?

For the night is safe and withholds the light

Of painful memories and spite

But all too soon the night starts to fade

Caused by the coming of the new day

And all of my angers fears and despairs are exposed again by the sun's cruel rays

So little candle burning so bright

Should I destroy you? Would that be right?

With one little puff you would be away

My dark side hidden until the next day

But your light that flickers gives me solace tonight

Withholds all the pains that give me reason to fight

So while I battle against memories and fears I'll allow you to burn to dry up my tears
