The Candle


Sparkling and shimmering the candle glows,

my hopes and dreams swirling in the vibrant orange hues.

Like a graceful ballerina

the light dances and sways,

my thoughts mesmerized by the silent beat,

its beauty reflects through the windows of my soul.

I feel empowered. I feel hopeful.

This tiny flame casts its light illuminating the darkness.

What a symbol to embrace!

Let my heart be like the candle

spreading its light of Joy, of Compassion, of Love and Hope.

Let it reflect in the hearts of many

and awaken our senses,

to live in the light...

to be the light...

forever shining bright...!

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
