The Last Candle

You light up my darkness
With your luminescent soul.

As you melt away
My dreams get the illumination just right.

I see you there burning,
Incandescently; as you weep silently.

For a moment for an eternity,
I watch you bleed wax and white smoke.

With nothing but darkness up and round
The wax hardens leaving a warm spot full of scented memories.

The darkness chokes you with all its might
Yet you still endure.

Warm and soothing; dispelling the darkness
But dangerous; when left unattended.

A flame burns…
Blow out the candle! Let it go they say!

They watch the smoke dance up in the air,
As the flames leave with a simple dance.

The last candle; glowing bright,
A silent denouement; flames no more.

The hardened wax; only remembrance of remnants of life
Still, nothing can weigh you down.

As I watch your little flame dance, I realise
All the darkness in the world can’t put out a candle’s light.
