If I was one thing, I’d be a candle..
Lighting the way, so you can handle..
Your life easier without woes…
Not having to fight with your foes..
I’d help keep you from stumbling over..
Things blocking your path to an open the door

If I light your path, Life is easier…
Even strong winds, my light will not deter..
No matter what, I’m here for you..
To cheer you up when times get tough..
If things look down or kind of rough,,
Just remember, I’m always here,,
In your heart, close and near..

I will help you out in every way,,
Happiness and love in your heart will stay…
Don’t blow me out, that’s one request..
Unless it’s me you do detest..

I don’t try to hurt anyone..
That isn’t good or any fun..
But, one day you may leave me behind..
You may no longer need my light to shine..

If that day comes, go on your way…
And I will hope to see you again one day..
If one day, I don’t appear,,
Don’t worry, Don’t fear..

I may be gone, but in your heart..
The light I gave you didn’t depart..
It will be there, forever and a day…
To always bring happiness and light your way..
Farewell for now, I’m needed elsewhere…

If your path grows dark, in your heart, I’m there…
So, I’m really not gone, just not seen…
I would not leave, I’m not that mean…
only one simple request that I must say…
please, say never forget those who lit your way…
