THE CANDLE

a poem by Edwin Keith Jepson, UK - poetry writer, author, poet

The candle keeps on burning
And the shadows in its glow
Hope it burns forever
But they will never know
Theres so much more in life to see
And they pray it never goes out
But they will never know
When it does
Of this there is no doubt
And our time on Earth
Is but a span
But dont ask me why
For I am just a man
But the candle keeps on burning
And the shadows in its glow
Hope it burns forever
But they will never know
