Tiny candles

For every candle that I lit with care
Ten Hail Mary's were whispered in prayer
For each confession I was told to amend
I said all my Hail Mary's ending in Amen

If I was in the confessional without a sin
I would say honestly what a good boy I had been
Then I would still go light another candle and pray
The next time my dad came home, that he would stay

    Agree with Carrie, the last line was right to the heart. I like the emotion it provokes. Well done Mitch.
