One of the first things I wrote. Some time in Sept. 2009
The Candle

I lit a candle tonight and placed it on the window
With thoughts of you and what you are doing tonight
It shines there alone and beautiful
Waiting for a heart that will be it's home
Waiting when all trace of hope is gone
It shines waiting for you

I sang a song tonight that was lonely and beautiful
it was a song of love and lost love
It was a song that moved me
It was a song that was part of me
It was a song I hoped one day to sing for you
It was a song waiting for you

I looked at the stars tonight and said a prayer for you
It was for love and happiness to fill your life
It was for all your dreams to come true
It was for what you've done for me
It was for the beauty that inspired me
It was a prayer waiting for you
