Candles Gleaming

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Whenever the soft light,

of candles gleaming,

makes a bright glow –

I think of you my love.

So long since we parted,

I light candles to remember you.

I know you are nearby,

as the candle flames softly sway,

your aura fills the room.

I know you love me still

and I will forever have sparkling memories –

as candles gleaming scent the room.

As the shadows grow long against the wall,

there is an aura so loving and warm,

I know you’re with me once more.

So by scented candlelight I can dream,

feel your touch upon my lips once more,

knowing you’re somewhere up above,

your blue eyes sparkling,

while I can smile surrounded by memories –

while candles keep gleaming…
