The Candle


The candle’s dying flame,

Learnt of its doom,

Learnt that todays,

Its last day in the room,

It dreamed of things,

It hadn’t done or seen,

It winced in regret,

At what might have been,

It bewailed love lost,

And shattered dreams,

Thinking of it’s broken hopes,

To glow as bright as moonbeams,

It began to think,

Of it’s death to come,

And shuddered in fear,

The unknown was worrisome,

And amidst the thoughts and dreams,

And all the doubt,

A wind blew through the room,

And “POOF”

The candle was out.
