CANDLES IN THE NIGHT

I am the keeper of the light…

All my candles are blazing bright
… in each… and every hallowed room
so spirits can find their way in the gloom
… Those of flesh… and those who are not
know that a friend is never forgot
To the candles’ bright gleam
… come old ones… unseen
I can feel them still here
in this place they held dear
With no lock swings this door…
welcoming them forevermore
… always precious in my sight

I am the keeper of the light
