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"
