Eternal Flame

I hold a light
That barely flickers in the night,
It's wick almost drowned
In the melted wax tears,
Yet it willfully holds on
Burning a bright blue.
It is the candle lit in your name,
And I have waited 
A lifetime for it to die,
For a strong wind to
Blow it out, or 
A Light to eclipse its glow.
Still it burns,
Faintly, but steadily,
The eternal flame 
You lit all those years ago.

This comes from the thought if you trulyove someone they always own a piece of your heart.
