Candle In The Window

Four Souls..

Snatched in the Night.

Four Families..
Left without Light.

Four Lives Lost Their Shine..
Yet Four Candles Now Arise.

I See a Candle in the Window..
While a Dove Perches Nearby.

You were the First to Leave..
My Oldest Friend..
My Second Brother..
I Denied You’d Gone.
The Wounds’ Still Deep..
The Pain Still Heavy..
But a Heart Now Stronger..
Goodbye, My Brother.
~
You were the Second to Go..
My Brave, Brave Girl..
You Chose to Leave..
Which Hurt Me to the Core.
For a Very Long Time..
I Felt There was Something I Could’ve Done..
But I Realized in the End..
It Was Your Father That Called You Home.
~
You were the Third..
Unexpected and Sudden..
“Ride or Die”, You Always Said..
Then Our Circle Got Smaller.
We Pour You a Drink From Time to Time..
Never Forgetting You Up in the Sky..
And Now the Time Has Come..
To Live and Let Die.
~
You’re the Most Recent..
My Dear, Dear Friend..
Your Heart Played a Tune..
That was Beautiful Till the End.
I Remember the Old Days..
Just Me and the Boys..
My Most Precious Memories..
Always Barefoot.. Running Wild.

I See a Candle in the Window..
While a Dove Flys Out of Sight.
