The candle shortens as the wick burns down. One small flame burning against a black sky. Is it enough for the lost to be found? Or will they flounder in the dark and die? The candle shortens, but it still burns warm. One small flame burning against a cold wind. Is it enough to keep throughout the storm? Or will the blaze be blown out in the end? The candle shortens, but the fire is seen. One small flame burning against the lost hope. Is it enough to light up a dark scene? Or will they fail to find it’s flaming rope? The candle shortens, but the wick burns hot. One small flame burns, is it enough, or not?
