During the Christmas holidays, a candle is continuously lit.
It is to your memory to let you know that I’ll never forget..
I sit by the fire reminiscing while I smoke a midnight cigarette.
Your vanilla scented candle burns on the coffee table.
You would be proud of me, because eventually I pulled myself together.
I remember you warned me so many times you wouldn’t be here forever.
You were my superwoman, I believed you were tough as steel!
This candle, along with your memory helps me to heal.
It’s kinda like you’re right here with me.
I think of you as I put each ornament on the Christmas tree.
Tears roll down my cheek as I whisper your sweet name.
Inside my heart resides your eternal flame!!
