Candlelight


The candle burns, a steady flame
that smoothes the lines and folds of time,
and brings out from the past a youth.

The candle shines, a gentle light
that soothes the scars of careworn hands,
revealing character and the truth.

The candle glows, a kindly light
erasing shadows of sin and sorrow,
showing her the hidden prize.

The candle gleams, revealing a promise
a glimpse of tomorrows, lips and laughter;
reflecting the love-light in his eyes.

    Crumbs! Same subject, same emotives, differing content.
