A Single Candle Light Burns

I will hold a candle for you, this ghost town
Name where status stands on fountains 
In the centres of central middle square with old glory

Like Trafalgar square with old glory
I will hold a candle for you in this windy state
Where the sand has invaded and occupies space

Determined to claim back to nature as a debt owed 
I will hold a candle for you, old mining towns 
That brought wealth and dreams of men no longer here 

To assert the importance you once held on treasure's gold rush 
Sceptics and philosophers say nothing last forever mortality 
Adds more value to meaning and then it is lost 

And then it is lost when time expires on what essence we hold 
But I will hold a candle out for you, a single candle light burns 
Live through me, my vessel as strong and big 

Enough to carry such weight of memory 
Live with me announce revitalisation 
And have old woods become fuel to burn this flame 

Keeping us warm in ghost towns 
Where echoes whisper and the candle light burns 
I will hold a candle out  in your name, for you 

For glory for your memory in essence more for me 
And have sentiments bask in our memory 
For I do treasure holding this candle light bright 

You became an ancestry in chapters written 
As rock foundation we stand on you for firm support 
As I watch you join the gods this solemn night

  1. There is lots that needs remembering when one stops to consider all the things that lead to where we are. I like the repetitions in this one.

  2. We must remember and learn from those gone before or we will repeat their mistakes. If we remember, we can honor their glories. Beautiful poem.

  3. Hi there! Please check out my new poetry blogzine and submit your best work: brevitypoetryreview.blogspot.com/

  4. A poem of remembrance and dedication! Beautiful!

  5. Can I simply say what a comfort to discover someone who genuinely knows what they're discussing on the net. You certainly understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More and more people ought to look at this and understand this side of your story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.
