Oh, I have that candle,
and I”m sure you do too,
that reminds me of the good times,
that reminds me of you.
When I inhale a deep breath
I feel the warmth that makes me smile
bringing me thoughts of those souls
that I haven’t seen in a while.
The soft hints of cinnamon
remind me of the many fun
carefree, late may days
in the park, under the sun.
The sugary smell of brown sugar
reminds me of your kind, gentle heart.
Your love, I can feel with me
even if death keeps us apart.
The soft scent of vanilla
brings me back to your little kitchen,
making blue blueberry muffins
that I haven’t tasted in God Knows when.
Oh yes I light that candle
and with it, I think of you.
I know I can’t see you yet,
but until then, this will do.
