Our Love Like a Candle

Updated on April 16, 2018

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I live in the suburbs of Riga, Latvia. I have a wonderful cat named Sid.

Our love like a candle flame,

burns strong and bright.

At the best of times,

the flame of our love so strong,

makes our passion flare again and again,

but like a candle flame,

I’ve seen changes in your face

and then the flame flickers and wavers -

in the face of the winds of change.

I often wonder,

if then I’ll lose you,

but then the flame rises once more

and you and I are in love again.

Let’s keep our love burning so bright,

never cast it asunder,

for some reason,

like a candle with an extinguished flame,

standing cold and silent.

Otherwise as time goes by,

we may regret losing one another,

along the road of life

and if we cannot get that candle of love,

lit at least one more time,

along and lost apart from one another,

we will regret and wonder why,

we let the flame of love get extinguished -

so that it no longer burns bright.

        It seems natural that the flame of love flickers at times, but true love weathers the storms of life and the flame burns brighter. Beautiful!!!!
