That flickering candle
The flame is about to extinguish
Just using up the last drops of wax
I wonder what this flickering candle is thinking
What thoughts are roaming around it,
Circling it like a moth……
Is it happy that it has lived its life
Illuminating life of others….
Or is it sad, that its illuminating life
is about to end…..
Lived its life to the full
To that last drop of wax….
Fought darkness with all its valor
Tried to enlighten all the dark corners
Glowing and beaming with enthusiasm…..
Even though its aware of its end
Its happiness so evident….
I wish I could live it like a candle
That beautiful, flickering candle
