PRAYER TO A CANDLE

PRAYER TO A CANDLE


candle oh candle light my way
so i can see to say:
where is the journey to joy?

under the evergreen up on the hill
seen from my window sill
my light fades with the dawn

where is the one girl who cared
for my fantasy mind?
who took her into a heart
with no feeling, no kind?

i was betrayed by a tender affair
we shared no love but who cares?
i am content by your side

oh candle light my way
so that i can see
i have begun my life wrong
make it right for me

candle oh candle burn to the end
then disappear with the wind
to darken my life forevermore.
