Little Candle

There was a little candle
That came into my life.
And from this little candle
Came a beautiful light

Its flame emits a warm glow
That brings light to the dark.
The little flame lets me know
Inside me there’s a spark.

With light also comes shadows
But there’s nothing to fear
Because the little candle
Shines when the dark is near.

My sweet little candle’s light
Illuminates my doubts.
I hope its warm, burning light
Will not ever go out.
