In the dark, but yet
I am the light 
But yet I still see 
Stiff and still I sit in this 
 world surrounded 
By wax and 
I sit in the dark and 
Wait till their lights
Have gone out, wait till
The darkness surrounds them 
I wait for them to light
My whisk
And my stiff cold wax
Begins to slowly meld 
Around me
But just before the wax 
Around me melts away
Their lights turn back on,
The sun begins to rise,
And my lights goes out so
I continue to sit in 
My world surrounded by wax
And I sit in the dark unable to 
Even though I am the light
The wax that surrounds me
Stays stiff and cold
So I wait,
I wait till their lights go back out
And the sun has set
And once again  
They are surrounded 
By the darkness I live in 
I wait for them to light my wish
And my wax to slowly melt away
So that I may also see the 
That brightens their day.
