Candle Light by Shannon Albo.

Hello lovely readers, this afternoon I came across a short but thought-provoking poem and I simply had to share it with you.

What is a candle to you? A flickering flame in the midst of darkness? The last piercing sight that is said to be seen before passing on? The hazy, awakening sun at dawn? A source of insulation? Or is it a form of pathetic fallacy? I could go on, but there are hundreds of definitions for the symbolic meaning of a candle. 



Love is like a candlelight, 
Glowing in the dark 
The warmness kindles 
From a tiny spark. 

The light is soft at first, 
Then, it grows bright, 
For some, it grows over time, 
For some, it's love at first sight. 

If not taken care of, 
The flame will slowly die 
And when it's gone, it leaves you 
Sitting there, wondering, why?

A message of warning lies beneath these three verses. To myself, it seems to instruct each individual to take great care in guarding their own candle (a euphemism for a person's soul). I wonder what you lovely readers think. 

I will end this post with the same question that began it...What is a candle to you?

  2. My husband is back!!! I had a problem with my husband 8 months ago,which lead to us apart. When he broke up with me,I was no longer myself,I felt so empty inside .Until a friend of mine told me about one of her spells that helped her in same problem too that she found on a television program. i emailed the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked me. To cut the story short,Before I knew what was happening,not up to 48 hours,my husband gave me a call and he come back to me and told me he was sorry about what has happened, I'm so grateful to this spell caster and i will not stop publishing his name on the internet just for the good work he has done for me.If you need his help,you can email him at ( tel +2347068534025.....thank you sir great Dr.EZIZA for all that you do and i greatly appreciate that.

  3. I was not happy until i met Dr.Agbazara through these details +2348104102662 OR because my husband has left me and never had the intention of coming back home. But just within 48 hours that i contacted Dr. Agbazara my marriage changed to the positive side, At first my husband came back home and since then my marriage has been more peaceful and romantic than ever before
