Christmas by Candle Light by Bob Atkinson


Christmas 
by 
Candle Light

(c)2011 Bob Atkinson

wax dripping, light waving
dancing memories in your heart
the candles flicker brightly
as you're darning your socks

tree lights ablaze
as thoughts re-appear
from old times, were good times
we've put on many years

tree lights of ages
past youth's active stages
done all the dreams
we set out to do

tree lights bring memories
of people gone from your life
through death and moving on
into others' lives

was good those things
we did together, and apart
building that good life
and never having wants

now it is over
all we have left
are flames from the candle
hope we did our best

tree lights ablaze
as thoughts re-appear
from old times, were good times
we've put on the years

tree lights of ages
past youth's active stages
done all the dreams
we set out to do
