The Candle Light

White is my heart
Like this candle wax
Pure and undefil’d
In a love unrivall’d
For Its wig set ‘light
Boldly burning bright
Side to side toss’d
As the wax reduc’d
From a hard solid
To a running liquid.
My heart melts ‘way
Each moment I wait
Makes a sad mood
Of being without you
And this wax sooner
Will be burnt over.
Thus my plea tonight
Each other we find
As this glows ‘round
Before it burns out.
In heaven there is
Neither conjugal bliss
Nor do the dead laid
See in their dark grave
Candle light burning
From lovers grieving!
