Candle
Coloured wax light
Wick of flickering flame
Casting shadows upon night's wall
Lover's silent dining companion
Symbol of life and constant hope
Perched upon birthday cakes
Snuffed by a wish ~
Candle

Lover's silent dining companion
Symbol of life and constant hope

wonderful piece..."snuffed by a wish" is quite a powerful line, had never thought of it that way, very creative.

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.
