When The Candle Burns Out

by Kelly Pleau
(Welland,ON, Canada)

When the candle burns out I will go to bed,I will sleep, I will weep. When the candle burns out I will cry, I will lay, I will await the break of day. When the candle burns out, my eyes will swell, I will feel the pain, I will feel the hell. When the candle burns out, I will face my fears, wipe away the tears, open the sheers. When the candle burns out, I will put on a brave face, welcome the day, handle it with grace. When the candle burns out, what will you do, what will get you through...When the candle burns out, I will be be there, I will let you know I love, let you know I care. Remember the flame not the lingering smoke, not the dark, but the warmth of the glow, it's flickering show when the candle burns out..

Awww thank you to the people who read my poem it means alot that you found as much comfort in reading it as I did in writting it..it was inspired by tea lights that I was waiting to burn out as I could not sleep and it came down to two..it reminded me of both my gram who just passed away April 20th and my gramps who passed away Oct. 5th 2010 they are together now and that made me feel better...so I am happy if you too have found comfort in my candle. Take care and know you are not alone in your grief.
