A Candle Lit


10 degrees the other day 55 today,
I knew the sun would be shining bright, thank you Jesus for the light

Sometimes we just need to wade through the storm, other times we need to mend the rags that are battered and torn

It’s a tough war out there I have the battle scars to prove it,

yet with grace upon me, my candle always stayed lit

Sometimes it flickered, friends and family randomly bickered

For a few minutes it lost it’s glow,
betting on the wrong horse with one to win…two to show

No more themes from ice castles releasing chariots of fire

A sapphire ring has a brand-new buyer

Soft yet pliable turns her platinum, burning exercises to release the fat in him

An ectomorph runs, he runs amazingly fast,

sinking the line with every cast

The seed is planted, planted for oats,
with a heart bigger than China he quietly gloats

The unity candle gently burns,
celebrating many faithful yearns,

Handled with love, handled with care, it was all worth it, for the life they share
