If I was one thing, I'd be a candle
Lighting the way so you can handle
Your life easier without woes
Not having to fight with your foes.
I'd help keep you from stumbling
Things blocking your path to an open
If I light your path, life is
Even strong winds, my light will not
No matter what, I'm here for you
To cheer you up when you are blue.
Do not fret when times get tough,
If things look down or kind of
Just remember, I'm always here,
In your heart, close and near.
I will help you out in every way,
Happiness and love in your heart
Don't blow me out, that's one
Unless it's me you do detest.
I do not try to hurt anyone
That isn't good or any fun.
But one day you may leave me behind
You may no longer need my light to
If that day comes, go on your way
And I will hope to see you again one
If one day, I don't appear,
Do not worry, do not fear
I may be gone, but in your heart
The light I gave you did not depart.
It will be there forever and a day
To always bring happiness and light
Farewell for now, I'm needed
If your path grows dark, in your
heart, I'm there.
So I'm really not gone, just not
I would not leave, I'm not that
Only one simple request that I must
Please, never forget those who lit
