Deep in the depths
of her battered heart
flickers a flame.
It gives little light
and even less warmth.
But it is enough
to keep her alive.
She can only muster
half rations of smiles
and flickers of laughter.
But it is enough
to keep her hanging in.
She writes by that light
when she is all alone
and her thoughts
are her own.
It gives her comfort
and her little flame blazes.
It warms her all over
her lonely places.

Warm in the light of day, a warm, soft glow in the night, thou flickering flame...
