The Candle – lyrics

The Candle is the poem Waxen Form set to music.

the wick runs short the 
candle fades
then flickers
and goes out

how many people
has she warmed
how many
shared her light

though with the wind
and with the rain
her flame
nearly died

she overcame
until finally
there is no more

now she has
no use no 
beauty she 
lies still cold

darkness surrounds her

is this the 
end or the 
of something new
