The candle

A Routine as usual 

and the the sun has disappeared 

Just to go and enjoy a nap 

the world is filled with darkness

but here are the candles 

that can be used till morning

some are dim 

others are off 

while others are still on

Ooh my!!! 

mine is off, ours are off 

pass the light on my friend 

help me lit my candle

help us lit our candles

because it's a matter of time

yes, a blink of an eye

and the sun shall reappear again

reappear and shine for us equally 


In this world, give a helping hand wherever you can.
