In Memory with Love--Beth Winchcombe--October 2, 2015--England

The Candle Has Gone Out

Another day,
Another night,
Will it be dark?
Will it be bright?
Love the day,
Love the night,
Enjoy each day,
Enjoy each night,
For life is like a candle
That one day will burn out,
It does not burn forever,
One day it will go out.


Dear Whispers Family,

It is a pleasure to share another poem in tribute to Beth. Sadly, we said good-bye to her in October 2015.  Beth embraced the Whispers community, supporting and caring about others with her kind heart.  She was a blessing in my life.  Beth shared her gift of words for monthly activities, collaborative poems, individual poems, and uplifting comments for other writers. She was our September 2015 Poet of the Month, an honor she richly deserved. She touched my heart. Thank you, to her husband, Geoff, and Jack Horne for allowing me the honor of publishing this poem.                                                               
                                         –Karen O’Leary, Editor


  1. A fitting tribute to a special lady.

  2. A very fitting and warm-hearted tribute to Beth, Karen. During the short time that I interacted with her through Whispers and Creative Inspirations, she was a blessing to me as well. I know she was a blessing to you and a great deal of others through her heart and words. Thank you for sharing this and thank you to Geoff for sharing her with our writing community. Thank you to Jack for being the wonderful friend and person he is.

    Continued blessings! -MJ
