 Echoes of the Heart

Candle Life

Although subdued, it gives a light
a glorious respite to an ebony night
it's flickering flame challenges a plight
a noble purpose for human delight.

Crying alone during its waking life
silently weeping, albeit shining bright
the subtle pride from its soul burning
sparkles the spirit of tiny ember within.

Tears cascade mutely over a melting body
sweltering flame cheering to dance wildly
a ritual performance to  an everlasting duty
to give light, cry, and rest in peace gracefully.
