The Burning Candle

Tragedy strikes
Lives lost
Shock prevails
Nightmare begins

Love lost
Supports snatched away
As tears overflow
Grief stricken hearts cry in silence

Those quarrels
Beautiful loving moments
Smile on the sullen tearful face
Memories haunt endlessly

Burning a candle
Remembering lost lives
A moment of silence
Prayer warms the hearts

The burning wick
Brightens for a while
Spreading solace
In everybody’s hearts

As wax melts away
Slow and steadily
So do memories
Fade, one after another

Life starts to smile once again
Lost lives, lost in oblivion
Just like the burning candle
Melting away in oblivion!
