‘One Candle’

When the candle is blown on the rainy night

And darkness falls onto our arms

He walks past me with his gaze fixed on the stars

His shadow moves slowly with delicate touch

His expression hopeful but eyes so sad

Who would want to have a job like that?

I sit on a bench not expecting what will come

He walks around me one more time

My hands seem to disappear

The fog surrounds me, covers me like silky down

His lips move in a whisper

One tear shining under his eyes

I hear my name, I’m sure about that

How does he know it, I ask?

‘Madelaine, Madelaine’

One little candle disappeared in the night
