Tears of wax

A candle is lit
For your safe journey, my love.
It burns,
It cries,
Its tears melt from inside.

I pray
For your safe return, my love,
While the candle keeps its light.

Gelid tears of permanence
Wishing you were here.
You’re far.
Wispers from angels
Keep my candle lit for you.

Guiding you back
To the safety of our love.
