One Candle--By Annie Jenkin--England

One Candle

One candle travels around the world
 and another marks the passage of time,
One candle in a light house saves lives
 in days past defended a castle,
One candle ignites beacons of hope
 fervently offered up in prayer,
One candle shines light on a new path
 a warm glow appears at a window,
One candle welcomes you safely home.
