Hope within a sparkle of light:
Candle of hope
The candle of hope, a small beacon of light,
One tiny flame that will always burn bright.
So tiny in size, that it is almost not there,
But set it alight and it will spread everywhere.
So small that you feel that it cannot last long,
But throughout all the darkness, it will shine strong.
Through all those shadows of doubt, it will hold fast,
Burning within you until all the doubts pass.
It will still shine strong in your darkest of day,
Bringing you fresh hope and then lighting the way.
Chasing out those fears that are hiding in you,
For the candle of hope will always shine through.
