The Flame

As sunlight falls on fields like molten gold
As dewdrops sparkle bright upon a flower
As starlight blazes through a darkened world
As pale moonbeams soothe a troubled hour
So does your smile warm my lonely heart
So do your eyes shine o'er each cold new day
So do your words a joyful light impart
So does your kindness calm my soul's dismay
You are my guiding star through winter's pain
You are my only hope when hope is dead
You are my loving smile through tearful rain
You are my only words when all's been said
I hold you in my heart the long night through
One candle burning bright with love for you.
