I don’t know if I would be happy
Just to be picked up when there’s no electricity
No other source of light
When it’s dark, in the night.
Don’t I deserve to be with you when you’re happy?
When you are at your best, in utter joy and glee
Don’t I deserve the same feeling?
Not to be left out like this
I know I let myself to be like this
Just a candle you can find as you please
At least, while you’re down
I can help erase that frown
I should just be contented this way, maybe
Someday I’ll be at your altar, standing idly
When my wax is over and too small
It might be over for us, after all
I’m just a candle.
I am limited
my time is numbered
But don’t be sad
I’ll be glad
To see you smiling
Despite the problems
you are facing.
