Touched By Your Flame

I had a mother once
With long dark hair
Whose candle faded, 
but not her flame

The light she left inside my heart
Is still alive, forever glowing

It flickers softly in the dark  

It chases shadows from my dreams

And comforts me, and softly keeps me 
warm and safe, 
and whispers love that does not leave me

It somehow knows when darkness swallows me

that soon the blush of morning follows

It tucks me in, and lightens my dread
and with warm breath, will kiss my head

Then tells me 

"Hush, hush little sweet one...., 
          ...go back to sleep"

For Gail's Contest: "Touched By Your Flame"

    Nothing like the exposure of a mother's loving heart, remembrances become golden and the links last a lifetime, until our twilight years come to claim us, always a joy to read your treasures Carrie, xxx
