THE CANDLE STILL BURNS

THE CANDLE STILL BURNS I fell in love when I was nine And he was nineteen My girlfriend's big brother I wasn't even a teen. I followed him here And I trailed him o'er there Must have driven him nuts I followed him everywhere. He was tall, dark and handsome With blue eyes to boot He had his pick of the girls I was jealous as hoot. When I turned seventeen We went on a date Thought I was in Heaven But 'twas not to be fate. He was too old, he said For him I shouldn't wait I went home and cried Why couldn't he wait?! I thought of him often Tho' he'd wed and gone away Later I got married And went on my way. Our marriages went bust But then as fate turns He now lives in Heaven But the candle still burns. © ELR 2013
