A Lone Flame This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   There

was nothing

to lead me to

the water that

night, except for

your candle. I put

all my trust into that

flame, so it would grow

stronger, brighter, never

burn out.



Your candle led the way down

to the ocean, the same ocean

that brings life and will soon

take back the gift of your light.



As I walked away I saw

the radiant glow of all those

who had followed us; they

had put their trust

in your

candle

too.
