A candle

A candle left
lighting through the dark,

lighting in our land, dearly it mourns you.
A candle left

as it lies by your body, seduced by your ode
futile to tame it's light

solid, illumes the crossed fingers 
entwined.

    Very well written Johan! The image of the candle solidifies the theme of loss. Nice!
