questions #4/the candle

The spirit of man is the lamp of the Lord, searching all the inward parts. Proverbs 20:27

I don’t know how long the wick
nor how pure the oil

I am walking the streets of my days
holding the lamp protecting the flame

sharing the light with someone
who is lost
lighten the way in the night
for another

I know how to make the flame stronger
to melt the frozen heart
to find the gem in the soul

but I don’t know
when the candlesnuffer will
flick

I don’t know
so
I walk
