The flame in the candle

By
The flame in the candle
Slowly and steadily as I lighted the candle,
I thought of all the consequences that I'll go through and handle,
With all the optimistic thoughts that entered my mind, heart and soul,
I looked at the flame, it looked like melting gold.

The shadows of the dark water I saw no more,
As I stared and stared at this golden ore,
Full of divine glory, it shined all the time,
Never saw such beauty, my heart felt with pride.

More beautiful than the sky and the marine it shined,
It turned my home into a holy shrine,
So peaceful up here, it burned with all it's freedom,
To replace the darkness, here came the light of wisdom.

Fast blew the wind, still the flame continued to burn,
God's picture I could see, the whole universe it could turn,
Lord's name I chanted, as I closed my eyes,
Felt like my soul has returned back to my heavenly paradise.

One by one as I lighted all the candles,
Suddenly felt like, I saw lord's sandals,
The blessings were showered, the shrine was blessed,
For all the sins I committed, I finally confessed.
