Out, Out, Brief Candle!

Out, out, brief candle!
Lit in this hour of darkness,
Desperate to see what our hands wrought,
To prove the worth of this day.

Out, out, brief candle!
Lit for this love made of dreaming.
Glowing while attention sustains it;
Neglected to embers in time.

Out, out, brief candle!
Lit for a life lived so quickly.
Burning so proudly defiant;
Then snuffed by an exhale of god.

Out, out, brief candle!
In the eternal sunshine of Home
Love’s light cannot be extinguished;
In Heaven each soul burns as One.
