Candles

In the dense darkness of night,
Candles stay alight
Although their wicks shorten,
And their flames dwindle,
The candles burn on,
Pillars of light
To guide the lost
No matter how the embers fray,
Always, the candles continue to breathe,
Swathed in a valiant struggle
Of light and dark
They go on until
The very end
