The Girl With a Candle

The Girl With a Candle


This girl had heard

Of a special time

When all were given

A candle to hold

Now hold this candle tight

Do not fright

From the light

It may flicker

It may falter

But this light

This very light

Is an expression

Of love


The girl stood there

With the candle

In her hands

A little shaken

With anxiety

As the light was lit

From the stage

And passed around


Until the light

Was on her row

She calmed herself

It is just a light


And here it was

Her turn to have hers lit

Deep breath

Brightly the flame burned

For all to see

She smiled with glee

The girl looked

Deeply into the flame

Wondrous colours

Glaze her eyes

Setting her heart

All aglow with delight


Waves of air

Blew all around

Not my candle,

The girl stood

Her ground


My flame is lit

It shines so bright

I want all to see

How beautiful

This world could be


For you see

The light is

In both you and me

Sure candles may

Have flames that burn

But our lights shine on

Day and night

Blessings to all

May joy and hope delight us all
