#candleflame I felt hope

December 13, 2018


I held a little candle flame
The bright glow illuminating my 
Cold hands
My fingers, numb, were warmed by the 
Mellow orange flicker
And I felt hope 
For the first time 
In a while

The icy wind tries to 
Snuff it out, to
Chill me to the core
So I 
Shield the flame from 
The biting gusts

The darkness surrounds and
Wants me to forget that
Hope resides in 
The palm of my hand
But the comforting flame
Reassures me with its
Steady light

And even when the flame
Flickers out,
Smoke rising,
And embers burning wistfully,
Wishing to be ignited,
I will fan the flames
To life again

I held a little candle flame
And I felt hope.
