Light a Candle


Light a candle for those we mourn. 

Into a new life they will be born. 

Do not look for them at the gravesite.


They are somewhere else radiating their beautiful light. 

They have gone to a new world where there is no darkness, no pain. 

Their light and essence will always remain.


Light a candle for those who have left this mortal place. 

They are free to travel through time and space. 

When we think of them, they are near.


When we sit in a beautiful garden. Their voices we hear. 

When we listen to a divine symphony, 

We close our eyes, their faces we see.


Light a candle for they have not really gone. 

With each flickering flame, in your hearts they will always belong.

My mom use to wake me up in the morning with this bible verse and then continued on with Tiffany and Dustin.
Isaiah  60:1 -Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.



If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried...
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried...
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too...
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.
