Let me see something in the darkness
The flicker of the candlelight
I pray for it to never stray from my sight
I pray for the light to never waver
Let me take my candle and shine it
Not just for myself
But let me light the candles of my friends,
And enemies and strangers too.
Let me fill the world with our quivering lights
Some burn strong and bright
Some are frail and weak
But together they glow in sheer brilliance.
Let me prevent the inevitable
Of a candle being extinguished
By snide, isolation and false truth.
Let these victims see and share my light.
Let me hold my candle high
For all to see
I pray that you see my candle.
I pray that you share it’s light.
