comparing a life to a burning candle

We celebrate each year that passes
some alone, some with the masses.

While life burns slowly, as candles do
our tightest grasp it passes through.

Ever at mercy to the wind of time
our candle shortens as we reach our prime.

Blaze burning wick 'till nothing remains
our lives wrap up, ending the flame.
