Candles, not flowers

What good would flowers do?
You can’t even smell their fragrance
Their colors are of no use
Cause you can’t even see
Satin petals, no matter how soft
If they cannot be touched
Is just a gesture in vain
If I offer them to you

So I light candles instead
And whisper my prayer
An unconventional gesture maybe
To express an affection
But a faint heat may float
A soft whisper may travel
And just like kisses blown in the air
I pray that they can get through to you

A candle and a prayer. That's a powerful combo indeed. And if we're lucky we can conjure the presence of those we pray for. A magical communion.

What a beautiful idea.

I will light a candle today, myself, and say a prayer for them both - and for us. ((hugs))

Wishing you peace and love.
