That flickering candle

The flame is about to extinguish
Just using  up the last drops of wax
I wonder what this flickering candle is thinking
What thoughts are roaming around it,
Circling it like a moth……
Is it happy that it has lived its life
 Illuminating life of others….
Or is it sad, that its illuminating life 
is about to end…..
Lived its life to the full
To that last drop of wax….
Fought darkness with all its valor
Tried to enlighten all the dark corners
Glowing and beaming  with enthusiasm…..
Even though its aware of its end
Its happiness so evident….
I wish I could live it like a candle
That beautiful, flickering candle
