Sit down and light a candle
Watch the flame, a story it will tell
Bringing back the secrets
Of memories you know so well.
The flame will waver up and down
Reaching high and drifting low
Its movement will vary slowly
As the air begins gently to flow.
When the flame moves upward
It depicts the highs in our life
Then flickering low once again
Tells of occasional strife.
A lighted candle brings back memories
Of yesterday's peace and joy we felt
Priceless memories live once again
As we watch the candle melt.
Light a candle and watch it burn
And reminisce as old memories return
Give thanks to God in heaven above
For all sweet memories of love.
